I am trying to install iai_photo package. I have already installed gphoto2 and libgphoto2 libraries and got it working with a sony camera.

Further I git cloned the iai_photo package and tried to catkin_make it. But I get the following error

CMake Error at iai_photo-master/CMakeLists.txt:17 (find_package): By not providing "FindGPHOTO2.cmake" in CMAKE_MODULE_PATH this project has
asked CMake to find a package configuration file provided by "GPHOTO2", but CMake did not find one.

Could not find a package configuration file provided by "GPHOTO2" with any of the following names:


Add the installation prefix of "GPHOTO2" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or set "GPHOTO2_DIR" to a directory containing one of the above files. If "GPHOTO2" provides a separate development package or SDK, be sure it has been installed.

Thanks for your answer. I already found the problem. The error was because of wrong name of package folder

It looks like there's an undeclared/documented dependency on an external library gphoto2 that you will need to resolve. I'd suggest ticketing it upstream and asking for feedback on the repository.
