Hello Community,

I am trying to run a simple Hello World cpp script on ROS indigo using Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. I followed the steps in the tutorials but when I do catkin_make the following errors appear. 'Agitr' is the name of the package I need to compile. I am really lost and other forum posts do not seem to help.

It may be clear that I am new to ROS and Linux, but I am really disappointed to see that I can not even run a hello world example, and I have lost more time setting up the environment than my project itself. (Which i could not even start). Please help me how to get a 'debuggers mindset' for ROS and Linux, and eventually develop an appreciation for this form of computing.
