Hello there,

I get an error while trying to build the baxter simulator by following their installation instructions on ros kinetic and Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. The error is specifically when I try to make the baxter_sim_io package as shown below. Any help with this regard is appreciated:

usr/include/boost/type_traits/detail/has_binary_operator.hp:50: Parse error at "BOOST_JOIN" baxter_simulator/baxter_sim_io/CMakeFiles/baxter_sim_io.dir/build.make:96: recipe for target 'baxter_simulator/baxter_sim_io/include/baxter_sim_io/moc_qnode.cxx' failed make[2]: * [baxter_simulator/baxter_sim_io/include/baxter_sim_io/moc_qnode.cxx] Error 1 make[2]: Waiting for unfinished jobs.... usr/include/boost/type_traits/detail/has_binary_operator.hp:50: Parse error at "BOOST_JOIN" baxter_simulator/baxter_sim_io/CMakeFiles/baxter_sim_io.dir/build.make:91: recipe for target 'baxter_simulator/baxter_sim_io/include/baxter_sim_io/moc_baxter_io.cxx' failed make[2]: [baxter_simulator/baxter_sim_io/include/baxter_sim_io/moc_baxter_io.cxx] Error 1 CMakeFiles/Makefile2:3111: recipe for target 'baxter_simulator/baxter_sim_io/CMakeFiles/baxter_sim_io.dir/all' failed make[1]: [baxter_simulator/baxter_sim_io/CMakeFiles/baxter_sim_io.dir/all] Error 2 Makefile:138: recipe for target 'all' failed make: ** [all] Error 2 Invoking "make -j3 -l3" failed

The kinetic-devel branch is not the default branch. Make sure you've checked out kinetic-devel in both baxter_common and baxter_simulator, and then do a clean build by removing the build/ and devel/ directories.

Used the solution suggested by @imcmahon and it worked. Thanks all.

For future visitors from the Internet:

Please try the ROS Kinetic tab of the Baster Simulator Installation guide to get up and running with Baxter Gazebo in Kinetic. Cheers!
