Trouble building Autoware Auto (which setup.bash to source?)

Hi. I am trying to build Autoware-Auto from source, following this guide.

I first installed ros2 foxy from source.

So now I have two directory that contains the ros2 files, and each have a setup.bash file inside.

A: ~/ros2_foxy/install/setup.bash

and B: /opt/ros/foxy/setup.bash

When I only source A, Autoware-Auto build failes with this message:

~/AutowareAuto$ colcon build
Starting >>> autoware_auto_examples
--- stderr: autoware_auto_cmake
CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:19 (find_package):
By not providing "Findament_cmake_auto.cmake" in CMAKE_MODULE_PATH this
project has asked CMake to find a package configuration file provided by
"ament_cmake_auto", but CMake did not find one.

Could not find a package configuration file provided by "ament_cmake_auto"
with any of the following names:


Add the installation prefix of "ament_cmake_auto" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or
set "ament_cmake_auto_DIR" to a directory containing one of the above
files.  If "ament_cmake_auto" provides a separate development package or
SDK, be sure it has been installed.
Failed   <<< autoware_auto_cmake [0.13s, exited with code 1]

When I source only B, or source both A & B, build also failes with this message:

~/AutowareAuto$ colcon build
Found package configuration file:
 but it set ament_cmake_cpplint_FOUND to FALSE so package
"ament_cmake_cpplint" is considered to be NOT FOUND.

CMake Warning at CMakeLists.txt:58 (find_package):
Found package configuration file:
but it set ament_cmake_uncrustify_FOUND to FALSE so package
"ament_cmake_uncrustify" is considered to be NOT FOUND.

~/AutowareAuto/src/common/autoware_auto_common/test/test_message_field_adapters.cpp:20:10: fatal error: geometry_msgs/msg/transform_stamped.hpp: No such file or directory
20 | #include <geometry_msgs/msg/transform_stamped.hpp>
   |          ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
compilation terminated.
Failed   <<< autoware_auto_common [14.8s, exited with code 2]

This is very weird, because I find that <geometry_msgs/msg/transform_stamped.hpp exists in /opt/ros/foxy/include/geometry_msgs/msg/transform_stamped.hpp.

You can find the CMakeLists.txt file here.

Why am I getting these build errors?

which setup.bash to source?

If you want to build Autoware using the binary ROS packages, you should not source the setup.bash for your from source installation. Likewise if you want to build using your from-source installation you should not source the setup.bash from the binary installation. With the exception of using the binaries as an underlay workspace for customizations in the source installation there are very few circumstances where you would source both setup scripts in the same session and I would recommend you avoid it.

Both error messages indicate that some packages required by A are not available in the workspace. Did you run the rosdep command indicated in the installation instructions?

What is the output of dpkg -s ros-foxy-geometry-msgs for your environment?

Thanks. It cleared out some confusion that I had.

The output: $ dpkg -s ros-foxy-geometry-msgs Package: ros-foxy-geometry-msgs Status: install ok installed Priority: optional Section: misc Installed-Size: 10090 Maintainer: William Woodall Architecture: amd64 Version: 2.0.3-1focal.20201210.061405 Depends: libc6 (>= 2.14), libgcc-s1 (>= 3.0), libpython3.8 (>= 3.8.2), libstdc++6 (>= 5.2), ros-foxy-fastcdr, ros-foxy-rosidl-default-runtime, ros-foxy-std-msgs, ros-foxy-ros-workspace Description: A package containing some geometry related message definitions.

Anyways, I do not know exactly how, but I got it compiled by sourcing both A&B, and specifying header file location for tf2.

$ colcon build --cmake-args -Dtf2_INCLUDE_DIRS="/opt/ros/foxy/include/;/opt/ros/foxy/share/;/opt/ros2_foxy/install/tf2_sensor_msgs/include/" -DBUILD_TESTING=OFF -DCMAKE_CXX_FLAGS="-Wno-error=old-style-cast" -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release
