My system is Ubuntu 15.04 and I use ros jade. I run the uvc_cam package, but every time I type

roslaunch uvc_cam test_uvc.launch

i get this error

ERROR: cannot launch node of type [uvc_cam/uvc_cam_node.cpp]: can't locate node [uvc_cam_node.cpp] in package [uvc_cam]

Any idea?

You can't run .cpp files directly, they need to be compiled. From the error msg I assume you git cloned the package, but didn't build it (with catkin_make in /path/to/catkin_ws). Is that the case?
