Hi, Please help me to resolve this issue while setting up ROS on RPi3 (buster).

Command failed, exiting.

I had followed this tutorial step by step.

spent lot of time in searching the solution for this issue, couldn't find the proper solution.

Please help.

I followed a tutorial and it works for me! The turorial is in another language though^^

For your convenience, the main procedure is :

  1. Install the dependency by

    sudo apt install build-essential automake libtool libfreetype6-dev libfreeimage-dev libzzip-dev libxrandr-dev libxaw7-dev freeglut3-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libglu1-mesa-dev libpoco-dev libtbb-dev doxygen libcppunit-dev

  2. Download _orge v1.8_ source code and complie.

    $ cd ogre
    $ mkdir build && cd build
    $ cmake ..
    $ make
    $ sudo make install

If you are using gcc-8 you might need to set to former version using:

cmake -DCMAKE_CXX_FLAGS="--std=gnu++98" ..

Solutions to other installation errors for Kinetic on pi 4 could be available in the same tutorial.

Thank you! that worked for me on Raspberry Pi 4 with Raspbian Buster. However when I try to run rviz it generates

error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

so I had must installed ORGE in the wrong place

EDIT: seems like running "sudo apt-get update" installations solved it

The problem with running the above command is that when you install libboost-thread-dev it comes up with more missing packages. Till all is said and done it installs the updated version libboost1.67-dev. The ROS Kinetic install requires libboost1.58 which is removed in the process. Then you will go around in circles trying to fix the problems this creates. I do not know how to accomplish installing OGRE without v-1.67 of libboost. I have searched for weeks. Hopefully someone else does.

After a lot of searching and experimenting I have found that after (only after) is fails for OGRE do this:

$ cd ~/ros_catkin_ws [should already be here]

$ sudo apt-get install -y libboost1.67-dev

$ sudo apt-get install -y libogre-1.9-dev

$ source /opt/ros/kinetic/setup.bash

$ rosdep update

$ sudo apt-get install -y libkml-dev

$ sudo apt-get install -y libgdal-dev

$ sudo -H apt-get install -y libvtk6-qt-dev

$ rosdep install --from-paths src --ignore-src --rosdistro kinetic -y

$ sudo ./src/catkin/bin/catkin_make_isolated --install -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release --install-space /opt/ros/kinetic

Now it will install all 191. Is this good bad or indifferent? I don't know. I'm also new to this. I lost all my logs so I don't know who to thank for all the advice I have read over the last month or two. If you recognize your work, Thank You for posting advice.

Maybe some one can run this and tell me if ...(more)

Since I tried a lot to find the solution of the error i was facing....failed to find any! :(

Finally i reviewed the error in detail and make suitable installation further....

hope this helps some how. For me it works...

for rviz,OGRE Not Found error:

sudo aptitude install libboost-thread-dev (YES)

sudo apt-get install libogre-1.9-dev ogre-1.9-doc ogre-1.9-tools (YES)

Applying the solution you recommended i got an error building the rospack in 56th out of 191 packages. I don't know, but it seems libogre-1.9-dev is for ros melodic while i am trying to build ros-kinetic. Still unable to use the ros platform in raspberry pi. Please help!
