Package cannot be found when sudo apt-get install ros-melodic-hector-quadrotor-demo. I even tried building it with the source but then errors from driver_base not found happen. If there are any melodic users can you guide me how to install hector_quadrotor.

Edit: This is the error message i'm receiving

CMake Error at /opt/ros/melodic/share/catkin/cmake/catkinConfig.cmake:83 (find_package):
  Could not find a package configuration file provided by "driver_base" with
  any of the following names:


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

What is the error that you get? I tried compiling the hector_quadrotor stack on melodic and got no compile errors.

Would you kindly let us know how you installed from source? Was that by cloning the git repo and attempting a catkin_make or by following the instructions here

try sudo apt install ros-melodic-driver-base. This solved it for me.

You can try sudo apt install ros-melodic-driver-base.

But I didn't have this error compelling from source. I got package hector_pose_estimation not found. Then I cloned the source of hector_pose_estimation to my workspace too. And then everything worked fine.
