I tought that was the ROS_PACKAGE_PATH doesn't find the pkg that i'm using, but y export it and nothing is better.

Does rosmake eigen fail due to Error: package/stack my_controller_pkg depends on non-existent package xxx again?

Your error happened because you don't have "eigen" package installed.

Normally, you can solve this kind of question by getting the source on this page,then rosmake eigen should solve this problem.

But note that eigen has been deprecated since ros-electric, so don't do that. Check the explanation on this page.

  1. just use the kdl, copy the codes with kdl the file.h and file.cpp
  2. in the manifest.xml erease the depend of eigen and run now rosmake
