Hello Everyone,

Currently I'm using ROS in combination with OROCOS. I want to use a the geometry_msgs package so I can send messages of the Vector3 type.

However when I try building rtt_geometry it turns out the package rtt_geometry_msgs does not exist. At first I thought it was a problem with the ROS_PACKAGE_PATH but it turns out it is not on my PC at all. I read that the rtt_geometry_msgs package is an autogenerated package that should not be edited manually.

What do I have to do to generate this package?

The error I get is shown below:

[rosbuild] Building package rtt_tf

  • Failed to invoke /opt/ros/groovy/bin/rospack deps-manifests rtt_tf [rospack] Error: package/stack 'rtt_tf' depends on non-existent package 'rtt_geometry_msgs' and rosdep claims that it is not a system dependency. Check the ROS_PACKAGE_PATH or try calling 'rosdep update'

Thanks in advance.
