Hi all!

I install the ar_kinect package with git clone https://github.com/mikeferguson/ar_kinect.git.

How can I create the bin directory for the ar_kinect package with the executable node now, so that I can use it?

I thought it works with the rosmake command, but it does not.

laptop@laptop:~/ros_workspace/ar_kinect$ rosmake ar_kinect [ rosmake ] rosmake starting...
[ rosmake ] Packages requested are: ['ar_kinect']
[ rosmake ] Logging to directory /home/laptop/.ros/rosmake/rosmake_output-20130418-172235 [ rosmake ] Expanded args ['ar_kinect'] to: []
[ rosmake ] WARNING: The following args could not be parsed as stacks or packages: ['ar_kinect'] [ rosmake ] ERROR: No arguments could be parsed into valid package or stack names.

"it works with the rosmake command, but it does not." Could you be more specific?

Ok, I forgot rosws set ~/ros_workspace/ar_kinect and source <path>/setup.sh before I install the package

Looking at the last two lines of rosmake's output:

[ rosmake ] WARNING: The following args could not be parsed as stacks or packages: ['ar_kinect']
[ rosmake ] ERROR: No arguments could be parsed into valid package or stack names.

It is telling you that it couldn't find the package ar_kinect, so it isn't doing anything. Take a look at the Environment Setup wiki page, and see if that helps you resolve the issue.
