Hi, after battling to get ROS working, i chose to work with gmapping so i downloaded the gmapping package and the openslam_gmapping_master packages (after reading a lot of posts, it seems like to be needed). Now i can't launch the gmapping as i get thisspace@space-HP-ProBook:~$ rosrun gmapping slam_gmapping scan:=base_scan [rospack] Error: package 'gmapping' not found

i tried to rebuild my catkin file as a results of feedback on forum but then i get this error

-- +++ processing catkin package: 'gmapping'

-- ==> add_subdirectory(gmapping) -- Using these message generators: gencpp;genlisp;genpy CMake Warning at /opt/ros/indigo/share/catkin/cmake/catkinConfig.cmake:76 (find_package): Could not find a package configuration file provided by "openslam_gmapping" with any of the following names:

Seems like openslam_gmapping is missing.

Did you try sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-openslam-gmapping ?

[rosrun] Couldn't find executable named slam_gmapping below /opt/ros/indigo/share/gmapping

Any clue on what the problem!!??
