Hi, I hope ROS community can help me

I use ROS version 1 on a Raspberry Pi 4 with 4Go with Raspian Buster OS. I want to use vision_visp on it for objects tracking.

I follow your tutorial :, but because I use raspbian, I had to compile by myself all dependencies included :

- open_cv 3.4.9 software (compiled inside python3 virtual environment)
- visp 3.2.0 software
- geometry2 ros package
- image_common ros package
- vision_opencv ros package
- image_pipeline ros package

Sadly, when I try the tutorial with this command "roslaunch visp_tracker tutorial.launch", I got errors. I found no solutions on the internet. Could you help to make this tutorial command work ? Ask me if you want more details. Below you can see main errors messages I got when I try the tutorial command :

[ WARN] [1579217775.782628551]: the camera_prefix parameter does not exist.
This may mean that:
- the tracker is not launched,
- the tracker and viewer are not running in the same namespace.

Do you use resource_retriever syntax?
I.e. replace /my/model/path by file:///my/model/path

Hey! I'm trying to do the same thing. I have Raspbian Buster running on a RPI 4 with ROS Melodic installed. However, I haven't been able to install the vision_visp package. I keep getting the message that there is no definition of the other dependency packages for the OS version [buster]. Did you manage to do it?
