I was compiling a ROS node in my raspberry pi (fresh install) and there is a cmake error. I'm using the raspberry in headless mode. The node complied successfully in my computer though.

CMake Error at /opt/ros/indigo/share/catkin/cmake/catkinConfig.cmake:83 (find_package) :
Could not find a package configuration file provided by "tf_conversions" with any of the following names:

Thank you for helping

Much appreciated. James

Do you have the tf_conversions package installed?

In general when building packages from source, it's advisable to first run

rosdep (check|install) --from-paths /path/to/your/catkin_ws/src --ignore-src

to make sure you are not missing any dependencies.

Simply cloning a single git repository will not be enough in most cases.
