Hi all,

I'm trying to integrate Code::Blocks with the actionlib_tutorials package to no avail. I'm using the ROS IDEs Wiki page for Code::Blocks and I'm getting a blank line when using:

rospack export --lang=cpp --attrib=cflags PackageName

rospack export --lang=cpp --attrib=lflags PackageName

I've created the package using catkin tools and have successfully run catkin build in the package root.



And using tree on my package looks like the following:

. ├── build

│   ├── actionlib_tutorials

│   └── catkin_tools_prebuild

├── devel

│   ├── etc

│   ├── lib

│   └── share

├── logs

└── src

│   └── actionlib_tutorials

Any idea as to why the cflags attribute from rospack export might be blank?

Thanks in advance.

(P.S. There was a previous topic about this here. The tutorial is points to did not solve my issue hence the re-post)

I haven't used Code::Blocks before, so I am not sure if this creates your problem, but I am sure that your ROS_PACKAGE_PATH is not initialized correctly.

ROS_PACKAGE_PATH should point to the src folder of your workspace. For correct initialization of this environment variable do:

source /opt/ros/kinetic/setup.bash 
cd /TigerBotWS/TigerBot
catkin build
source devel/setup.bash

In addition, you could export these flags with the export tag of actionlib_tutorials/package.xml
