Migration from hydro to kinetic

I need to find a kinetic kame driver for a motor controller (Roboteq AX2550) but the closest thing I found was a driver from hydro ( ). After copying it from github, I can't figure out how to convert it over to kinetic kame.

In CMakeLists.txt, I changed

find_package(catkin REQUIRED COMPONENTS geometry_msgs nav_msgs roscpp serial serial_utils tf )


find_package(catkin REQUIRED NO_MODULE)

as per instructions on

but then it says

"If you were using the exported dependency list to pass a CMake module name that will not work anymore. You will need to find the CMake module manually in your CMake extra file. "

I have no idea what this means. How do I find those CMake modules manually? What/where is that CMake extra file?

I was going about it all wrong, I didn't have to modify anything

I deleted the directory with the kinetic driver and re-copied the github directory. Then I added a few other directories from github into my catkin_ws/src folder.

  • common_msgs
  • serial
  • serial_utils

and now it passes catkin_make
