Hello,

which Ros interface are you using? We recommend to use the new RosInterface, instead of the RosPlugin. The RosPlugin is still there for compatibility reasons, but you can leave it out for compilation. With the RosInterface you could just compile the package v_repExtRosInterface (and ros_bubble_rob2), and ignore the other packages.

Cheers

I'm already using RosInterface: the libv_repExtRosInterface.so wich ships with V-REP is not working for me, hence why I tried (unsuccessfully) to build it.

Code: Select all

set(roslib_LIBRARIES "/opt/ros/kinetic/lib/roslib")
Also before building, I had to compile and install globally brics_actuator from Github, because it's not present in Kinetic.
you don't need any of that.

just make sure you install the ubuntu package ros-kinetic-desktop-full and the most recent version of v_repExtRosInterface plugin (follow install instructions in README)

I just tested Ubuntu 16 + ROS Kinetic + V-REP 3.2.2 and it works like in older release.
