Hello, When running "catkin_make" , I got "Could not find a package configuration file provided by "gazebo_ros_control" with any of the following names"

From Gazebo website, , they mentioned that "Note: currently in ROS Jade there is no ros-jade-gazebo-ros-control package released."

From , "The 2.5.3 Jade version will include the gazebo_ros_control: ros/rosdistro#11044".

However, is there any way I can either

  1. build gazebo_ros_control from the source code and install in my local jade (/opt/ros/jade/share:/opt/ros/jade/stacks)
  2. ignore gazebo_ros_control

Thank you for taking time on my questions

I got the response from Stack Overflow and verified the response work.

The solution is git clone gazebo_ros_control from its repo ( ) and put it under your catkin_ws/src and catkin_make.

Please leave your comment if any question or suggestion.
