I am trying to install groovy on OSx 10.8.2, following this guide


when i configure the build this happens

-- +++ processing catkin package: 'std_msgs' -- ==> add_subdirectory(std_msgs) CMake Error at build/devel/share/catkin/cmake/catkinConfig.cmake:71 (find_package): Could not find a package configuration file provided by "message_generation" with any of the following names:


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

-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

Can someone please help?

I had the same problem while installing groovy on Arch Linux.

I fixed it by cloning into the repository (and message_runtime) in groovy_underlay thusly:

cd ~/groovy_underlay
git clone
git clone
