Do you have the robotnik_msgs package installed or in your workspace? When you cloned the package did you install its dependencies before trying to compile it?

Hello,in the case you cant find the reqiured package, take a look in your package files (launch, urdf...) and look where it get called. Comment it out and replace with ros common commands. This helped me when i downloaded packages from ros development studio.

Look at this video from RDS-Developers "", they describe how to do it. And Download the required Packages like "spawn_robot_tools" aswell from their bitbucket. But like i said, you can search for the functions of that packages and replace them.
