Hi All,

I can see that this question has been asked a number of times. I'm trying to build Kinetic on my Pi 3. Currently hitting issue building robot_state_publisher where Eigen3 isn't being found.

I know it's on the system (I've sudo apt-get install libeigen3-dev)

Anyone have any suggestions? Trawling the net hasn't yet yielded a definitive answer. I wonder if there's something wrong in the make files.

Many Thanks
