I tried to build a ros package downloaded, and while building i get this error

CMake Error at /opt/ros/noetic/share/catkin/cmake/catkinConfig.cmake:83 (find_package): Could not find a package configuration file provided by "hector_gazebo_plugins" with any of the following names:


Add the installation prefix of "hector_gazebo_plugins" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or set "hector_gazebo_plugins_DIR" to a directory containing one of the above files. If "hector_gazebo_plugins" provides a separate development package or SDK, be sure it has been installed. Call Stack (most recent call first): smb_common/smb_description/CMakeLists.txt:4 (find_package)

The ros package you downloaded seems to have unmet dependencies on your system.

To download and install all the dependencies, use rosdep at the root of your workspace:

  1. Go to your workspace: cd your_ws
  2. Run rosdep install:

    rosdep install --from-paths src --ignore-src -r -y
  3. If the issue persists:

    sudo apt install ros-noetic-hector-gazebo-plugins
