CMakeText.txt file attached below. This is located in ~/catkin_ws/src/actionlib_tutorials:

cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.8.3)
project(actionlib_tutorials)

## Compile as C++11, supported in ROS Kinetic and newer
#add_compile_options(-std=c++11)

## Find catkin macros and libraries

## System dependencies are found with CMake's conventions
# find_package(Boost REQUIRED COMPONENTS system)


## Uncomment this if the package has a setup.py. This macro ensures

## To declare and build messages, services or actions from within this
## package, follow these steps:
## * Let MSG_DEP_SET be the set of packages whose message types you use in
##   your messages/services/actions (e.g. std_msgs, actionlib_msgs, ...).
## * In the file package.xml:
##   * add a build_depend tag for "message_generation"
##   * add a build_depend and a exec_depend tag for each package in MSG_DEP_SET
##   * If MSG_DEP_SET isn't empty the following dependency has been pulled in
##     but can be declared for certainty nonetheless:
##     * add a exec_depend tag for "message_runtime"
## * In this file (CMakeLists.txt):
##   * add "message_generation" and every package in MSG_DEP_SET to
##     find_package(catkin REQUIRED COMPONENTS ...)
##   * add "message_runtime" and every package in MSG_DEP_SET to
##     catkin_package(CATKIN_DEPENDS ...)
##   * uncomment the add_*_files sections below as needed
##     and list every .msg/.srv/.action file to be processed
##   * uncomment the generate_messages entry below
##   * add every package in MSG_DEP_SET to generate_messages(DEPENDENCIES ...)

## Generate messages in the 'msg' folder
# add_message_files(
#   FILES
#   Message1.msg

please don't upload your CMakeLists.txt but edit your question and copy'n'paste it. Then format it with the preformatted text button (the one with 1001010) on it.

Header files (except for the ones from messages) are not "generated" and don't end up in devel by default...

Can you add you CMakeLists.txt file that you're using to you question. That is probably where the problem lies, so we'll need to see it to be able to help you.

Above, at the top of this thread, I have added my CMakeText.txt file which is located at ~/catkin_ws/src/actionlib_tutorials. Per your comments above, can you please review and let me know what is wrong/missing in the CMakeText file?

To be honest, I'm not sure. I've compared it to some of my code that works with action servers and the CMakeLists.txt file looks like it should work. The only difference is that I'm on Ubuntu 16.04 and ROS kinetic, so I can't tell you if there should be a difference for the newer version.

I've been able to resolve this issue on my own. My end goal has been to build a Linorobot ( www.linorobot.org ) But, never having built a robot and being a complete newbie to ROS, I first went through all the beginner tutorials in ROS.org and then started going through the pdf book, ROS_by_example_v1. It recommends the tf and actionlib tutorials in addition to the ROS beginner ones. As a result of these tutorials, I have within my ~/catkin_ws/src folder three packages; beginner_tutorials, learning_tf2 & actionlib_tutorials. With all three packages in the src file, when I run catkin_make, the issue described in my original post occurs. However, if I remove the learning_tf2 package and run catkin_make again, everything works; fibonacci_server.cpp is compiled and linked and rosrun actionlib_tutorials fibonacci_server does invoke the server!

The issue is that when catkin_make processes the catkin package learning_tf2 (in the case of that also being in the src file), it throws an error relating to turtlesim. It then continues on and processes actionlib_tutorials but does not compile fibonacci_server.cpp nor does it make the .h include files associated with the action messages. Removing learning_tf2 from the src file, or fixing the dependency issue for turlesim, allows catkin_make to finish without errors (but still with a few warnings) and for the .cpp file to be compiled.

Thanks to those who tried to help solve this problem.

Onward.

Ray
