I'm trying to use the catkin version of hector_quadrotor.


When I do the catkin_make I get a cmake fail.

paulo@ubuntu:~/hector_quad$ catkin_make

I am trying to download this build but ran into an error when doing git clone fatal: https://github.com/tu-darmstadt-ros-pkg/hector_quadrotor/tree/catkin/info/refs?service=git-upload-pack not found: did you run git update-server-info on the server? How did you overcome this?

If you click on the link in my post you should go to the page of hector_quadrotor catkin version, with no problems. Then you only have to click on download zip.

Thanks for the tip. I have built it and have not experienced the said error.

Did you use catkin_make? No "Could not find a configuration file for package hector_pose_estimation"? I don't understand what I did wrong then.

I used catkin_make cmd. Though having compiled it, ros was still not able to find the demo launch file though it is still there. I am thinking that it is not as simple as it seems.

after compiling you have to do that command in your workspace (source devel/setup.bash) then you can do that roslaunch package_name launch_file_name.launch. Hope this helps you.

After putting the hector_quadrotor into the src folder and recompiling it, I encountered the same error as yours ... The difference is mine stopped at gazebo_plugins

yeah.. I talked to the guy that did hector_quadrotor, and You need some other packages for this to work. You basically need some of the other hector packages. He did for me to just use the one you install automatically, from the ubuntu repository
