I have a workspace created and most of my ROS packages are in the workspace. But when I clone a new package and try to run catkin_make I get the following error.

CMake Error at /opt/ros/jade/share/catkin/cmake/catkinConfig.cmake:75 (find_package):
Could not find a package configuration file provided by "urdfdom_py" with any of the following names:


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

Call Stack (most recent call first): 
srdfdom/CMakeLists.txt:10 (find_package)

-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!
See also "/home/.../first_workspace/build/CMakeFiles/CMakeOutput.log".   
See also "/home/.../first_workspace/build/CMakeFiles/CMakeError.log". 
make: *** [cmake_check_build_system] Error 1
Invoking "make cmake_check_build_system" failed

What could be the issue and how can I solve it?
