As Indigo does not support debian packages for Ubuntu 16.04, I'm trying to build it from source following http://wiki.ros.org/indigo/Installati... Everything goes well until I'm trying to build the catkin workspace. I can't build the pcl_ros package. The log is shown as below:

It seems to be related with -lvtkproj4, so I've tried to install vtk, but nothing changes after that. There are some related issues posted: https://github.com/PointCloudLibrary/... https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugre... Someone say it is due to the bug of vtk6.

Anyone can help me? Much appreciation!

I ran into this same issue. I used apt-get to install libpcl-dev, libvtk6.2 and libproj-dev. Then, I followed the hacky symbolic linking trick mentioned here: https://askubuntu.com/questions/97914... and was able to compile the package. The code for creating the symbolic link is shown below:

ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libvtkCommonCore-6.2.so /usr/lib/libvtkproj4.so

If/when this doesn't work during runtime, I plan to build the pcl_ros without using rosinstall, but directly from source. You can augment the CMakeLists.txt to not use any of vtk packages as shown on the ros-perception github.

similar issue, this solved it! Also need to :

ln -s /usr/lib/libvtkproj4.so /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libvtkproj4-6.2.so.6.2.0
