I tried to build pointcloud_to_laserscan from turtlebor package, and I got this errors:

/home/wojciech/catkin_ws/src/turtlebot/pointcloud_to_laserscan/src/cloud_to_scan.cpp: In member function 'void pointcloud_to_laserscan::CloudToScan::callback(const ConstPtr&)': /home/wojciech/catkin_ws/src/turtlebot/pointcloud_to_laserscan/src/cloud_to_scan.cpp:137:29: error: no match for 'operator=' in 'output.boost::shared_ptr<T>::operator-><sensor_msgs::LaserScan_<std::allocator<void> > >()->sensor_msgs::LaserScan_<std::allocator<void> >::header = (& cloud)->boost::shared_ptr<T>::operator-><const pcl::PointCloud<pcl::PointXYZ>

In ROS Hydro, all ROS messages were removed from PCL. This requires that code be updated to use pcl_conversions, see the migration guide for details:

You might check if there is a version already updated for Hydro, or if you are using the Turtlebot, check out the replacement depthimage_to_laserscan which offers significantly better performance
