Unable to build dependancy with package in stack

Hi and thanks for a great forum!

This is my first question, hope I have the correct tags and so forth.

So, I am trying to build a launch package connecting several packages. Building dependancies and launching nodes directly under the catkin_ws works fine but when I try to depend to "sicktoolbox_pls_wrapper" I receive:

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

sicktoolbox_pls_wrapperConfig.cmake sicktoolbox_pls_wrapper-config.cmake

The package is found with roscd and rospack find, I can also run the nodes in sicktoolbox_pls_wrapper with rosrun. Could the fact that the package is found in a stack be the problem? I have also tried to build with the dependency directed to the stack without success.

Does anyone have an idea? Thanks!

What do you mean by "inside a stack"? Where did you get this package from? My guess currently is that the package is a rosbuild package, whereas your package is a catkin package. You cannot depend from a catkin to a rosbuild package. You would need to migrate the sick package to catkin as well.

Spot on! Did not think about that, I will try to migrate it. Thanks!

The package was found here link text I can prob look at the similar package (without PLS support) here link text?

Best regards!

The problem was indeed that the package was rosbuild, after migrating it to catkin the package is found and can be called within the launch file.
