When I try to compile the robot_model it shows that: " CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:6 (catkin_package): Unknown CMake command "catkin_package". "

I am using Ubuntu 12.04 & ROS Fuerte.

Can someone tell me how to solve the problem?

Thank you very much.

I guess you are trying to compile a Groovy package in Fuerte. The build system changed a lot so this will certainly not work. Don't use the default branch but the robot_model-1.8 branch which is also used for building the Fuerte Debian package.

Thank you. Solved by: hg clone -r robot_model-1.8.0
