I have a problem when switching from catkin_make to catkin build. Although I have already refered to the migration guide ( but I still could not figure out what is the culprit. As for the Altimeter.h which is complained to have been missing, It is there in ./devel_cb/include/cvg_sim_msgs directory. The error is as below:

It would help to see package.xml and CMakeLists.txt for the cvg_sim_gazebo_plugins package. My initial guess is that a dependency on cfg_sim_msgs is not being configured correctly for the build system.

@Thomas D: Thank you very much for the hint. By your hint, I've finally managed to build it successfully by altering the dependency in the cvg_sim_gazebo_plugins in that to include cvg_sim_msgs both in both places.
