I have a problem with message_to_tf.the problem is when you compile message_to_tf. when rosmake is used gives the following error:

error: /home/dava/local/src/ros-fuerte/hector_common/message_to_tf/src/message_to_tf.cpp:40:26: error: no matching function for call to ‘btMatrix3x3::btMatrix3x3(tf::Quaternion&)’

You should use the fuerte branch of the hector_common stack or message_to_tf where btMatrix3x3 and other bullet types have been replaced by the respective tf types. The URL of the repository is

See for further details.

In the meantime, the fuerte branch has been merged with the trunk branch and /trunk/hector_common can be used for ROS electric and upwards.

In fuerte you cannot mix tf and bullet data types anymore. Best if you replace all bt prefixes with the namespace tf::, for instance replace btMatrix3x3 with tf::Matrix3x3.
