Hi, i try to combine ros with qt. I want to develop some GUI including ros. I created a package with roscreate-pkg then i’ve created a QTProject copy whole cpp, h and ui files into the main folder of my package. Then i edit the CMakeLists.txt and tipped in the whole cpp h and ui files. When i launch CMakeLists.txt from qtcreator i’ve got: C

Make Error at CMakeLists.txt:2 (include):
  include could not find load file:

    /core/rosbuild/rosbuild.cmake


CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:12 (rosbuild_init):
  Unknown CMake command "rosbuild_init".


-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

This is my CmakeLists.txt

cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.4.6)
include($ENV{ROS_ROOT}/core/rosbuild/rosbuild.cmake)

# Set the build type.  Options are:aaa
#  Coverage       : w/ debug symbols, w/o optimization, w/ code-coverage
#  Debug          : w/ debug symbols, w/o optimization
#  Release        : w/o debug symbols, w/ optimization
#  RelWithDebInfo : w/ debug symbols, w/ optimization
#  MinSizeRel     : w/o debug symbols, w/ optimization, stripped binaries
#set(ROS_BUILD_TYPE RelWithDebInfo)

rosbuild_init()

find_package(Qt4 REQUIRED)
# enable/disable some Qt features
set( QT_USE_QTGUI TRUE )
set( QT_USE_QTOPENGL TRUE )
set( QT_USE_QTXML TRUE )
include(${QT_USE_FILE})

ADD_DEFINITIONS(-DQT_NO_KEYWORDS)

Qt specific files might need to be moc'd. This includes the headers, so put those here:

set(qt_srcs
      main.cpp
      mainwindow.cpp)
set(qt_hdrs
      mainwindow.h)
qt4_automoc(${qt_srcs})
QT4_WRAP_CPP(qt_moc_srcs ${qt_hdrs})

QT4_WRAP_UI(uis_h mainwindow.ui)
# include this for ui_h
include_directories(${CMAKE_CURRENT_BINARY_DIR})


#set the default path for built executables to the "bin" directory
set(EXECUTABLE_OUTPUT_PATH ${PROJECT_SOURCE_DIR}/bin)
#set the default path for built libraries to the "lib" directory
set(LIBRARY_OUTPUT_PATH ${PROJECT_SOURCE_DIR}/lib)

#uncomment if you have defined messages
#rosbuild_genmsg()
#uncomment if you have defined services
#rosbuild_gensrv()

#common commands for building c++ executables and libraries
#rosbuild_add_library(${PROJECT_NAME} src/example.cpp)
#target_link_libraries(${PROJECT_NAME} another_library)
#rosbuild_add_boost_directories()
#rosbuild_link_boost(${PROJECT_NAME} thread)
#rosbuild_add_executable(example examples/example.cpp)
#target_link_libraries(example ${PROJECT_NAME})

Where is the problem? I spend 3 days trying to make it run, i cracking up.

Please provide OS, ROS distro you are using whenever you ask a question (without them it's hard for others to narrow down your problem).

The error message stating that rosbuild.cmake could not be found occurs when the ROS environment variables are not set (i.e. when setup.bash/zsh/whatever is not sourced).

So if you start qtcreator from your terminal where the ROS variables are set, it should work as expected.

if you are using Fuerte:

I recommend you to download and install "ros-fuerte-qt-ros" package from ROS repositories. then create a ROS package using following command:

roscreate-qt-pkg yourpackagename

The created ROS package has a Qt based default GUI which you can modify or even remove it completely.

Also if you are using ROS Electric:

you can have a look at eros_python_tools.

I used QT Creator in the past (and decided the code completion was either bad or required magic that I couldn’t figure out). I did not have problems with cmake, though. I followed the following steps, which are slightly different it seems than yours. With an existing ros package:

Go to File->New File or Project->Import Project->Import Existing Projects, click choose Create a project name (I used the ROS package name), then select (navigate inside) the folder of the package. Click next. Select ALL checkboxes to include all files.

I think these steps are also on the ROS IDE's page. Edit: And make sure to run qtcreator from the command line as the previous reply said. To make sure you command line environment is ok, try commands like $roscd PACKAGENAME and ensure they work.

I thought there is a problem wirh environment too. Even when I start qtcreator from command line its not work. I checked all environments they all set right. Any ideas?

Hello,

i get hopefully my last error. When i try to run my application.

[FATAL] [1355735900.735429071]: You must call ros::init() before creating the first NodeHandle
[FATAL] [1355735900.735536083]: BREAKPOINT HIT

    line=151

this ist my main.cpp

#include <QtGui/QApplication>
#include "../include/robot/robot.hpp"
#include "ros/ros.h"

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
{
    ros::init(argc, argv, "RobotControl");
    QApplication a(argc, argv);
    Robot w;
    w.show();

    return a.exec();
}

and my Robot.cpp

#include "../include/robot/robot.hpp"

#include <math.h>
#define PI 3.14159265

#include "ros/ros.h"

#include "../ssc32py/srv_gen/cpp/include/ssc32py/MoveAng.h"
#include "../ssc32py/srv_gen/cpp/include/ssc32py/None_Float.h"

int i_joint , status;
double t1, t2, t3, t4, t5, v_xy, x, y, z, l1, l2, field[8][8][3], angle, ttime;

bool endgroup;
ros::NodeHandle n;
ros::ServiceClient client;
ssc32py::MoveAng service_MoveAng;

Robot::Robot(QWidget *parent) :
    QMainWindow(parent),
    ui(new Ui::Robot)
{
    ui->setupUi(this);
}

Robot::~Robot()
{
    delete ui;
}
