Can anyone let me know (well remind me infact I did this once before) how to install PCL on the raspberry pi. I want to build the laser_scan_matcher which needs PCL.

At the moment I get:

CMake Error at perception_pcl/pcl_ros/CMakeLists.txt:8 (find_package):
By not providing "FindPCL.cmake" in CMAKE_MODULE_PATH this project has
asked CMake to find a package configuration file provided by "PCL", but
CMake did not find one.

Could not find a package configuration file provided by "PCL" with any of
the following names:


Add the installation prefix of "PCL" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or set "PCL_DIR"
to a directory containing one of the above files.  If "PCL" provides a
separate development package or SDK, be sure it has been installed.

I've tried a number of ways to install it and thus far no joy.

It has been 3 years. Is there a solution yet?

I am also interested in the solution for Raspberry Pi for ROS melodic on Raspbian Buster.

pi@raspberrypi:~/catkin_ws $ rosdep install pcl_ros
ERROR: the following packages/stacks could not have their rosdep keys resolved to
system dependencies:
pcl_ros: No definition of [rostest] for OS version [buster]

Any help will be appreciated

In the end I had to download and manually build and install PCL.

Specifically: pcl_conversions pcl_msgs perception_pcl

Kind Regards
