So, I feel I am so near to where I want to be with my Robot, people on here have been brilliant!!

I have a Robot (Pi) running Lidar (Neato) and I want to get Hector Mapping working with it. The Problem is I am running ROS Kinetic and Jessie on the PI? I seen how I could do it if I was running Ubuntu Mate on the Pi.

Anyone got any ideas? I thought the below would work

rosinstall_generator ros_hector_slam --rosdistro kinetic --deps --wet-only --tar > kinetic-custom_ros.rosinstall

I have also tried going to the catkin /src git clone However it does not seem to build

CMake Error at /opt/ros/kinetic/share/catkin/cmake/catkinConfig.cmake:83 (find_package): Could not find a package configuration file provided by "nav_msgs" with any of the following names:

I discovered that you can just compile from source (github) and that works. However I actually reverted to Indigo on my Pi as it seems a lot more mature (and just works)
