When I try to use catkin_make, it fails at map_server.

I got the following message

CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-3.10/Modules/FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake:137 (message):
Call Stack (most recent call first):
  /usr/share/cmake-3.10/Modules/FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake:378 (_FPHSA_FAILURE_MESSAGE)
  /usr/share/cmake-3.10/Modules/FindSDL.cmake:190 (FIND_PACKAGE_HANDLE_STANDARD_ARGS)
  navigation/map_server/CMakeLists.txt:12 (find_package)

Makefile:4688: recipe for target 'cmake_check_build_system' failed
make: *** [cmake_check_build_system] Error 1

sudo apt-get install libsdl-image1.2-dev and

sudo apt-get install libsdl-dev

These solve the issue.


Also for melodic, you can use this to install other dependencies too. Enter your practice_ws directory and run this command:

rosdep install --from-paths src --ignore-src --rosdistro melodic -y

Also, about your own packages, do not forget to add your dependencies to your CMakeLists.txt and package.xml. I've seen lots of packages which they don't have all dependencies listed. rosdep looks up for dependencies from your definitions in the package. Even if you are able to build your workspace, you might face with a runtime error when a dependent package isn't installed.
