I am trying to build the navigation stack from ros-planning/navigation/tree/indigo-devel but am having problems with libraries:

ros/catkin_ws/src/navigation/map_server/src/image_loader.cpp:43:27: fatal error: SDL/SDL_image.h: No such file or directory
 #include <SDL/SDL_image.h>

Solved that with apt-get install libsdl-image1.2-dev

But I cannot get past this one:

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lorocos-bfl

It comes up while trying to compile the robot_pose_ekf package. Removing that package allows the entire nav stack to build. The same problem is referenced here

but the answer is to build robot_pose_ekf separately. There should be a better way, so that the entire nav stack builds with catkin_make.

Have you run rosdep install --from-paths /path/to/your/catkin_ws/src --ignore-src before trying to build? That should resolve any missing dependency issues (and would've told you about sdl-image missing).

Try to install gps-common package I guess it solves your problem

sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-gps-common

otherwise try to install binary version of navigation stack:

sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-navigation

Hope it helps
