I am trying to set some camera parameters in code instead of at launch, and compilation cannot use the driver header file. I assume it is in my cmake configuration, but I'm not sure where the error is, here is a stripped down version of my project:

#include <ros/ros.h>
#include <pointgrey_camera_driver/PointGreyCamera.h> \\ this line causes the compile error
class mweBlackfly
    ros::NodeHandle n;
    {ros::Duration(5).sleep(); // sleep for 'x' second(s).}

int main(int argc, char **argv)
    ros::init(argc, argv, "mweBlackfly");
    return 0;


cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.8.3)

find_package(catkin REQUIRED COMPONENTS



add_executable(         mweBlackfly  src/mweBlackfly.cpp)
  add_dependencies(     mweBlackfly  mwe_gencpp)
  target_link_libraries(mweBlackfly  ${catkin_LIBRARIES})

edit: I added a comment to the second #include line to highlight the code that causes the error to throw.

Can you perhaps describe what it is that you actually want to do? "getting some parameters in code instead of at launch" is a bit vague, and I'm wondering whether there might be an easier / more appropriate approach to do what you want.

I think I figured out a workaround: I believe the driver binds values to the parameters at launch, and they need dynamic reconfigure to edit. I used the command line option found here to load a yaml: http://library.isr.ist.utl.pt/docs/ro...
