I tried to install the package from the indigo branch, before that I ran sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-ardrone-autonomy

The catkin_make didn't work

But the apt-get did?

Are you on an ARM platform by any chance?

The apt-get command works well ans i'm using Intel processor

So .. the package would then be installed, would it not?

After having sourced /opt/ros/kinetic/setup.bash, it should be available.

What is the output of rospack find ardrone_autonomy?

That github link and the package you install using apt-get are one and the same.

If you install something using apt-get, you don't need to build it with catkin_make anymore.

What would be the point of distributing binaries otherwise?


Ahhhh I thought they were different because in the link the ROS version is indigo and mine is kinetic. Thx !!

The Kinetic version is released from the indigo-devel branch. See wiki/ardrone_autonomy.

If you ever do need to build a package from source, what you did is not the way to go about it. See #q252478 for a general description of the process.
