I am new to ROS. I just installed ubuntu 18.04 just for ROS and setup the environment (I am using zsh). Note: I had to add my home path to the ROS_PACKAGE_PATH by hand. I saw that it was included in one of the steps and it only had the ROS_ROOT (minus the ros dir) in it. Have no idea if it maters or not. Didn't seem to fix this issue.

Running the "catkin_make_isolated" (in ~/Project/ros_catkin_ws), I fail at the following point:

    [100%] Built target librviz_sip

please don't do that. It should not be necessary.

can you clarify why you seem to be building everything from source?
