Standalone Python library for the catkin package system. Contains support for finding and introspecting catkin packages in the file system.

Installing catkin_pkg

sudo apt-get install python-catkin-pkg

The Debian package only contains the command line scripts and depends on another package named python-catkin-pkg-modules which contains the Python modules required for the scripts. This allows to install python-catkin-pkg-modules and python3-catkin-pkg-modules at the same time.

On non ubuntu platforms

Use pip:

sudo pip install -U catkin_pkg
  • In case you experience error with the command above, you might want to run it without -U option. See this thread.
