[SOLVED] Crazyflie ROS Stack "cmake failure"

Post by HuzayfaaN » Fri Jan 18, 2019 9:58 pm

Hi All,

I am attempting to setup the crazyfle software on a Linux system running ubuntu 16.04 LTS and ROS Kinetic.

As I am quite so unfamiliar with the operating system itself and also ROS, I have therefore done some background research and familiarised myself with the basics. Now, I am utilising one particular publication to download the crazyflie software and get it running on my PC. However I have ran into an error which I don't entirely understand or know how to go about fixing.

I am using this publication ("Flying Multiple UAVs Using ROS" - http://act.usc.edu/publications/Hoenig_ ... OS2017.pdf) to help support the setup of the software. I have, so far, successfully completed the instructions up until and including section 3.3. When executing the following commands as part of section 3.4

$ git clone https://github.com/whoenig/crazyflie_ros.git
$ cd ~/crazyflie_ws
$ catkin_make


I encounter the following error message in the command window

I have also attached the two files that the code above refers to.

I would very much appreciate any help. Thank in advance for your time and support! :)

p.s. if this matter should have been posted elsewhere please let me know and I'd be more than happy to remove the post from here and re-post it under a different forum - sorry.

Hi,

The book chapter is a bit outdated. You will need to initialize and update the git submodules, see https://github.com/whoenig/crazyflie_ros#installation for the updated instructions.

For crazyflie_ros related problems, it is best to open an issue on github to get help.
