I have been trying to build this project, it has tf2_bullet which is part of geometry_experimental in it and depends on bullet, So I have been getting this error message whenever I try to do catkin_make

-- checking for module 'bullet'
--   package 'bullet' not found

I have done some research and I could not find bullet package. I installed bullet3 from bullet github but that did not solve the problem Any help would be appreciated...

You could use rosdep for figuring out what package you need to install. Checking out this yaml file, I see that the you are supposed to install libbullet-dev to satisfy the bullet requirement.

From the command line you could use a command similar to

rosdep install --from-paths WORKSPACE --ignore-src --rosdistro=ROSDISTRO

in order to automatically install all system dependencies of all source packages in your WORKSPACE. Note I found the yaml file above with the command

rosdep where-defined bullet

sudo apt-get install libbullet-dev resolved this for me in Rasberry-Pi
