I tried building sim_ros_interface in Ubuntu18.04 but I'm getting the following error. I am unable to find what to do.

commands use for building:

$ export COPPELIASIM_ROOT_DIR=~/path/to/coppeliaSim/folder //path to coppeliasim has been properly specified accordingly

$ catkin build --cmake-args -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DLIBPLUGIN_DIR=$COPPELIASIM_ROOT_DIR/programming/libPlugin 

error output:

  By not providing "FindCoppeliaSim.cmake" in CMAKE_MODULE_PATH this project
  has asked CMake to find a package configuration file provided by
  "CoppeliaSim", but CMake did not find one.

  Could not find a package configuration file provided by "CoppeliaSim"
  (requested version with any of the following names:


  Add the installation prefix of "CoppeliaSim" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or set
  "CoppeliaSim_DIR" to a directory containing one of the above files.  If
  "CoppeliaSim" provides a separate development package or SDK, be sure it
  has been installed.

I am stuck on a similar problem. I have opened an issue on the official CoppeliaSim forum: https://forum.coppeliarobotics.com/vi...

Feel free to follow and contribute on that. :)

Best regards.

@fillshad, thanks for your contribution. I've converted your post to a comment rather than an answer. Answers are reserved for answers to the question, not general discussion. If you find an answer on the CoppeliaSim forums, it would be great if you could come back here and provide that answer. Thanks!
