I was trying to connect ROS kinetic with optritrack via VRPN. I am using Ubuntu 16.4.02. I followed this instruction but still didn't get it right. I am new for Ubuntu terminal and ROS too. I am kind of confused what to do. I actually followed the following steps I am not sure if I did it right so,
1. I cloned to my catkin_ws
2. I used export file to export the file I donwloaded from the same link.
3. I ran the command catkin_make then it showed me the following messages

Base path: /path to where catkin_ws found
Source space: /path to src
Build space:/path to build
Devel space: /path to devel
Install space: /path to install ####### Running command: "make cmake_check_build_system" in "/path to catkin_ws/build" ####### Running command: "make -j1 -l1m" in "/path to catkin_ws/build"

I don't know what to do next

Did you ever get it working? I am finding it very hard to get proper instructions on installing vrpn for ros kinetic, any guidance you can give will be very helpful
