I'm trying to create another workspace alongside with current existing one. I have a working workspace named 'catkin_ws' my new workspace is 'reemron_ws'

when i do cd ~/reemron_ws and type catkin_make I'm getting the error:

The specified base path "/home/lizi/reemron_ws" contains a CMakeLists.txt but "catkin_make" must be invoked in the root of workspace

I pay attention that the CMakeList.txt in my new workspace is linked to other file. This is the output of ls -l (in reemron_ws folder) lrwxrwxrwx 1 lizi lizi 49 Apr 30 14:07 CMakeLists.txt -> /opt/ros/indigo/share/catkin/cmake/toplevel.cmake

I know the error says that catkin_make must run from the root of the workspace but I'm at the root of the workspace. And suggestions?

The problem was i run the command:


at the root of the workspace instead at /src

I delete the folder and create again and its OK.
