opencv2 and opencv3 wrong inclusion with cv_bridge

Hi all, I'm trying to compile a node which uses internally the applyColorMap function, which is defined inside contrib in OpenCV2 and it is defined in core in OpenCV3.

I have both installed, OpenCV2 with the ros package in /usr/include, and OpenCV3 manually installed in /usr/local/include.

To force the use of OpenCV2 set the following CMakeList.txt:

cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.8.3)

find_package(catkin REQUIRED COMPONENTS roscpp nav_msgs cv_bridge
                                        image_transport pcl_conversions
                                        sensor_msgs tf tf_conversions)


set(CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE "Release")

find_package(OpenCV 2.4 REQUIRED)
message("-- OpenCV version: ${OpenCV_VERSION}")
message("-- OpenCV include dirs: ${OpenCV_INCLUDE_DIRS}")
message("-- catkin include dirs: ${catkin_INCLUDE_DIRS}")

find_package(PCL REQUIRED)


include_directories(include ${catkin_INCLUDE_DIRS})

add_executable(height_publisher_node src/HeightPublisher.cpp)
target_link_libraries(height_publisher_node ${OpenCV_LIBS} ${PCL_LIBRARIES}

The message correctly says that we look for OpenCV in /usr/include and there is no reference to /usr/local/include anywhere

The only include that has something to do with OpenCV is the following:

#include <cv_bridge/cv_bridge.h>

If I have installed OpenCV2 only, the compiler complains a missing definition of applyColorMap. I can solve that by adding in the code the following include:

#include <opencv2/contrib/contrib.hpp>

But if I install OpenCV3, it complains about a redefinition of classes and redeclaration of constants. When I remove the line, the project compiles normally. But when I deploy the code on a machine without OpenCV3, it complains about the missing include.

Adding the following:

#include <opencv2/contrib/contrib.hpp>

does not help, because the detected major version is 2, although somewhere in cv_bridge I guess, is using the OpenCV3, as indicated by the following error line:
