Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTE

I'm trying to setup a workspace to simulate Baxter in gazebo with Ros Indigo. When I run catkin_make in my workspace i get the following error:

[100%] Building CXX object baxter_simulator/baxter_sim_hardware/CMakeFiles/baxter_emulator.dir/src/baxter_emulator.cpp.o

This error has been haunting me for the past three days...

I'm fairly certain that your error is related to catkin finding the wrong version of OpenCV. Do you by any chance have ros-indigo-opencv3 installed? You can check with dpkg -l |grep ros-indigo-opencv3. If it is installed, try removing with sudo apt-get remove ros-indigo-opencv3. If it is not installed, have you built OpenCV 3 from source? Or completed some other procedure to install it?

SOLVED: opencv3 was not installed through apt. I did install it from source though. After deleting/uninstalling all versions of opencv, I went to the following link and installed it from there:

FOLLOW ALL STEPS - Including system restart.

Then i went back into the base of my workspace (baxter_ws) and ran catkin_make then i ran catkin_make install. After launch gazebo, baxter was inside and all the error messages were cleared.

Please do not add answers that are not answers. If you have new information to add, please edit your original question. You may not need to install OpenCV from source (unless you have good reason to). OpenCV 2.4 is available on Ubuntu repos, using that version is probably easiest.
