What is your operative system? I encountered lots of problems for raspbian and switched to ubuntu mate 14.04 and everything worked like a charm

I have Raspbian Jessie. But having many issues getting packages install. I'll use Ubuntu Mate. Thanks

Download common messages from here: https://github.com/ros/common_msgs and place it in src folder. Then run catkin_make in your workspace. It will install all common message type including geometry_msgs. If you only want geometry messages then download the geometry_msgs folder.

Thanks for this useful answer. On RPi, this worked for me. In my /home/pi/catkin_make_ws/src folder, I cloned the entire common_msgs repo with following

cd ~/catkin_make_ws/src git clone https://github.com/ros/common_msgs.git cd .. catkin_make

Much more straightforward than trying sudo apt install ros-geometry-msgs, rosinstall, rosdep (I'm a complete newbie to ROS, so these commands are mysterious to me)

that's not ROS, that's Debian / apt package management.

And rosinstall+rosdep should not be needed if you already used apt.
