How do you install rqt_robot_monitor on Kinetic? My target is a Raspberry Pi, where there are no Ubuntu packages available, so I'm installing from source. However, the procedure for installing from source didn't work with this package.

My procedure is:

cd /home/pi/ros_catkin_ws
rosinstall_generator rqt_robot_monitor --rosdistro kinetic --deps | wstool merge -t src -
wstool update -t src -j2 --delete-changed-uris
rosdep install --from-paths src --ignore-src --rosdistro kinetic -y -r --os=debian:jessie
./src/catkin/bin/catkin_make_isolated --install -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release --install-space /opt/ros/kinetic -j1

Yet running rospack list | grep -i monitor lists no matching packages. The rosinstall_generator command is definitely finding the package. Why isn't it being installed?

Have you sourced the setup file after building the workspace with catkin_make_isolated? Your procedure doesn't mention it. Also maybe the output of the commands you invoked contains more information what might have gone wrong.
