Compiling vrep ros interface on ubuntu 18.04

Post by labo » 21 Feb 2019, 15:00


I am trying to compile vrep_ros_interface on ubuntu 18.04 but i get this error when I do catkin build

Errors << vrep_ros_interface:make /home/hiro/Workspace/ros/catkin_ws/logs/vrep_ros_interface/build.make.002.log
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/home/hiro/Workspace/ros/catkin_ws/src/vrep_ros_interface/external/v_repStubsGen/", line 102, in <module>

cd /home/hiro/Workspace/ros/catkin_ws/build/vrep_ros_interface; catkin build --get-env vrep_ros_interface | catkin env -si /usr/bin/make --jobserver-fds=6,7 -j; cd -

I added to PYTHONPATH variable the path to the external VrepStubsGen but it did not solve.
