catkin_make Error: Could NOT find TinyXML2 (missing: TinyXML2_LIBRARY TinyXML2_INCLUDE_DIR)

updated 2017-12-11 02:18:10 -0600

Hi everyone! I get this error when I try to compile my packages with catkin_make on a BeagleBone board (ARM). I have these packages installed (aptitude search tinyxml): libtinyxml-dev, libtinyxml2-2v5, libtinyxml2.6.2v5

Any suggestion would be appreciated. Here is the log:

We're going to need to see your CMakeLists.txt.

The error comes when compiling the pluginlib package However, this is a standard ROS library, so the CMakeLists.txt theoretically should be fine. I will post it in my post anyways!

I finally got it to work! Essenially, I installed the libtinyxml2-dev on top of everything. This apparently added the header files ROS was looking for. It now works fine!

This is what I get when searching with apt on my BeagleBone

how did you install dependencies in the first place? Shouldn't rosdep install .. have installed the dev lib for you?

Honestly don't remember if I tried that, but a possible problem would be that the BeagleBone is running on an ARM processor, and I had to compile ROS for it specifically.

yes correct...all I had to do was sudo apt-get install libtinyxml2-dev ..and it worked
