Hey guys, Iḿ having a bit trouble installing the sick_scan package on my Raspberry Pi 4. Iḿ working with ROS Kinetic on a Raspberry Pi 4 with Raspbian Buster. After cloning the Repository from GIT I want to execute the

catkin_make install

command. But during this I get the following Error Message

-- ==> add_subdirectory(sick_scan) -- Could NOT find dynamic_reconfigure (missing: dynamic_reconfigure_DIR) -- Could not find the required component 'dynamic_reconfigure'. The following CMake error indicates that you either need to install the package with the same name or change your environment so that it can be found. CMake Error at /home/pi/ros_catkin_ws/devel/share/catkin/cmake/catkinConfig.cmake:83 (find_package): Could not find a package configuration file provided by "dynamic_reconfigure" with any of the following names:


Add the installation prefix of "dynamic_reconfigure" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or set "dynamic_reconfigure_DIR" to a directory containing one of the above files. If "dynamic_reconfigure" provides a separate development package or SDK, be sure it has been installed. Call Stack (most recent call first):
sick_scan/CMakeLists.txt:51 (find_package)

-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred! See also "/home/pi/ros_catkin_ws/build/CMakeFiles/CMakeOutput.log". See also "/home/pi/ros_catkin_ws/build/CMakeFiles/CMakeError.log". Invoking "cmake" failed

As I am pretty new to working with ROS and those topics related to it I wonder what I have to do to fix this issue. Does anybody know this problem and could help me?

Greetings, Julian

Please see whether the workflow described in #q252478 solves this.

In general: you cannot just clone a repository and start building your workspace. At the very least you'll have to make sure you've installed all dependencies. #q252478 shows the convential workflow that addresses all aspects.

Thanks for your advise. I will try it this afternoon and report if it works out!
