while i was doing rosmake i got errors. After running "rosmake roomba_500driver_meiji " i got errors below.

    mkdir -p bin
  cd build && cmake -Wdev -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE=/opt/ros/indigo/share/ros/core/rosbuild/rostoolchain.cmake  ..
  [rosbuild] Building package roomba_500driver_meiji
  Failed to invoke /opt/ros/indigo/bin/rospack deps-manifests roomba_500driver_meiji
  [rospack] Error: package 'roomba_500driver_meiji' depends on non-existent package 'geometry_msgs' and rosdep claims that it is not a system dependency. Check the ROS_PACKAGE_PATH or try calling 'rosdep update'

  CMake Error at /opt/ros/indigo/share/ros/core/rosbuild/public.cmake:129 (message):

    'roomba_500driver_meiji'.  Look above for errors from rospack itself.
    Aborting.  Please fix the broken dependency!

i also get this error by running rosdep keys geometry_msgs

    ERROR: Rosdep cannot find all required resources to answer your query
Missing resource geometry_msgs
ROS path [0]=/opt/ros/indigo/share/ros
ROS path [1]=/home/pi/ros_catkin_ws/src
ROS path [2]=/home/pi/ros_catkin_ws/src/ros_comm/rosbag
ROS path [3]=/opt/ros/indigo/share
ROS path [4]=/opt/ros/indigo/stacks

i thought these errors were coused by lack of ROS path but im not sure. by the way the folder "geometry_msgs" is located at /home/pi/ros_catkin_ws/src/genmsg/test/files/geometry_msgs/msg

im using Raspberry pi, os is Jessie and i installed indigo.

You use rosbuild in Indigo? Is that even supported any more? Why not catkin_make?

I'm not sure, but I understand rosmake is a tool for compiling a single package, not all the packages in the workspace as when using catkin_make, and it also works in ROS Indigo.

In the error message, it says geometry_msgs package is missing, are you sure you have this package? it says this missing package is necessary for compiling the roomba_500driver_meiji package.
