cartographer_ros cmake Error

I'm following the google cartographer instructions for installing ros integration and ran into an error during the compilation step. When running

catkin_make_isolated --install --use-ninja

cmake failed to compile cartographer after successfully compiling Ceres, as it seemed to have trouble finding a sparse linear algebra library. A gist of the error resides here.

The important part is here:

==> Processing plain cmake package: 'cartographer'
==> Building with env: '/home/aleks/Documents/catkin_ws/install_isolated/'
==> cmake /home/aleks/Documents/catkin_ws/src/cartographer -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/home/aleks/Documents/catkin_ws/install_isolated -G Ninja in '/home/aleks/Documents/catkin_ws/build_isolated/cartographer/install'
-- Build type: Release

CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:30 (find_package):
  Found package configuration file:


  but it set Ceres_FOUND to FALSE so package "Ceres" is considered to be NOT

What's odd is that it found Eigen, and even compiled Ceres, but still had the error.

I'm thinking this might be some catkin related dependency issue, anyone have any ideas?

For me, the installer was looking in the wrong place for include files. It was looking in /include for a folder that was actually in /usr/include, so I just made a link to that folder in the location where the installer was searching.

Hope you resolved the issue, but here is what I did. I had similar issue, I tried installing Ceres from external source with different cmake options but no luck. Resolved it by changing CMakeLists in ceres-solver. Just by setting EIGENSPARSE param on line 106 as ON.
