I'm trying to build gencpp from source on a Fedora 18 system. I think I have the prerequisites already built: catkin and genmsg; however, during the build, cmake fails to find the genmsg cmake files. Here's the error:

+ /usr/bin/cmake -DCMAKE_VERBOSE_MAKEFILE=ON -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=/usr -DINCLUDE_INSTALL_DIR:PATH=/usr/include -DLIB_INSTALL_DIR:PATH=/usr/lib64 -DSYSCONF_INSTALL_DIR:PATH=/etc -DSHARE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=/usr/share -DLIB_SUFFIX=64 -DBUILD_SHARED_LIBS:BOOL=ON ..

I've tried to define the genmsg_DIR variable as suggested in the error too, but it doesn't seem to make a difference:

I think you need to add the installation prefix of genmsg to your CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH. In your case I think this might be:

-DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=/builddir/build/BUILDROOT/ros-gencpp-groovy-0.4.12-1.fc18.x86_64//usr/

But without knowing more about your build environment I don't think I will be able to give you the exact solution.

Also, did you ensure that the genmsg-config.cmake was in the the path you get for genmsg_DIR?

EDIT:

You should look for genmsg-config.cmake OR genmsgConfig.cmake

I've updated the question with more information, on the build system, and attempts with the -DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH. The genmsg package did not generate a genmsg-config.cmake file though.

It should generate a genmsgConfig.cmake file, I was thinking it was the other one, but in fact its the first.

The file is available at: /usr/share/genmsg/cmake/genmsgConfig.cmake. For the buildroot, it would become /builddir/build/BUILDROOT/ros-gencpp-groovy-0.4.12-1.fc18.x86_64//usr/share/genmsg/cmake/genmsgConfig.cmake. Maybe I need to place the cmake file in another location, where cmake can find it.

CMake finds config files in various locations http://cmake.org/cmake/help/v2.8.8/cmake.html#command:find_package

catkin uses PREFIX/share/genmsg/cmake/genmsgConfig.cmake. Make sure PREFIX is part of the CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH and the file exists. Also remove previous CMakeCache.txt files.

I have the same problem building it from gentoo. Well, atcually I do have the .cmake file in the indicated folder but still cmake doesn't find it. Did you manage do solve it?

Also with genpy.

Edit:

$ ls /usr/local/share/genmsg/cmake/ -l total 44
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  6126 Jun 20 17:42 genmsgConfig.cmake
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root   427 Jun 20 17:42 genmsgConfig-version.cmake
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 10757 Jun 20 17:46 genmsg-extras.cmake
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  4219 Jun 19 19:53 pkg-genmsg.cmake.em

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root   118 Jun 19 19:53 pkg-msg-paths.cmake.in

We can see that the file is there, or at least a file with the indicated name.

But still it does not work. I tried too with the path to genmsg:

$ cmake -DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=/usr/local/share/genmsg/ ..

-- Using CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH: /usr/local/share/genmsg/

-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

But I managed to compile the system without this. Now some packages are crashing while running rosmake -a.

Double check your CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH, if the file exists and it isn't being found then it isn't on the CPP.
