Hi, I am using ROS jade and I needed velodyne package for my module. So I used the tutorial describe in

and built velodyne package for ROS Jade. After that when I do catkin_make

I get following errors:

-- Using these message generators: gencpp;geneus;genlisp;genpy CMake Error at /opt/ros/jade/share/catkin/cmake/catkinConfig.cmake:75 (find_package): Could not find a package configuration file provided by "velodyne_pointcloud" with any of the following names:


Add the installation prefix of "velodyne_pointcloud" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or set "velodyne_pointcloud_DIR" to a directory containing one of the above files. If "velodyne_pointcloud" provides a separate development package or SDK, be sure it has been installed. Call Stack (most recent call first): azcar_sim/CMakeLists.txt:7 (find_package)

-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred! See also "/home/jane/ros15/trunk/gazebo_workspace/build/CMakeFiles/CMakeOutput.log". See also "/home/jane/ros15/trunk/gazebo_workspace/build/CMakeFiles/CMakeError.log". make: * [cmake_check_build_system] Error 1

I don't know how to fix that. Can somebody help me?

Thanks. Rahul

Okay, so I realized that my module and velodyne package that I had downloaded from git were in different catkin workspace. I resolved it by downloading and making velodyne package in same catkin workspace.
