Hi Sai, have you checked whether you included the cv_bridge in your manifest.xml?

In the last version of CvBridge, some changes have been made. The tutorials on cv_bridge make no difference between includes in electric and Fuerte/Groovy, but there is some.

Thus, instead of

#include <cv_bridge/CvBridge.h>

You should try

#include <cv_bridge/cv_bridge.h>

Or the inverse ^^

As I'm not sure it'll really help, Let me know...

This issue with cv_bridge got solved when I added the path to to the python path of environment variables .... export PYTHONPATH=$PYTHONPATH:/opt/ros/fuerte/stacks/vision_opencv/cv_bridge/src/cv_bridge

If the same error occurs with image_geometry, then just remove import image_geometry. For calibrating ASUS replace the /camera/rgb/image_raw with /camera/rgb/image_mono in the rosrun camera_calibration cameracalibrator................
