This is running on Ubuntu 12.04 in a virtualbox on windows7

I'm trying to make the hand_interaction package for kinect, but it won't compile.

Here's my error:

mkdir -p bin cd build && cmake -Wdev -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE=rospack find rosbuild/rostoolchain.cmake .. -- Eigen found (include: /usr/include/eigen3) [rosbuild] Building package hand_interaction
Failed to invoke /opt/ros/fuerte/bin/rospack deps-manifests hand_interaction
[rospack] Error: package/stack hand_interaction depends on non-existent package eigen

 CMake Error at /opt/ros/fuerte/share/ros/core/rosbuild/public.cmake:133


Failed to invoke rospack to get compile flags for package
'hand_interaction'.  Look above for errors from rospack itself.

Aborting. Please fix the broken dependency!

You are trying to compile a package in Fuerte that hasn't been updated for it yet. Eigen is not part of Fuerte anymore. You could try to remove the dependency on it from hand_interaction's manifest.xml file but you can expect more problems.

If you want to develop a patch for hand_interaction, here is the migration guide:

I'm just trying to get it to run, I don't know enough about it to make a patch... DX But thanks I guess :/

If you can't fix it yourself, try contacting the developers. I don't see any bug reporting links for that stack, so maybe it is not actively maintained.
