Create ROS custom message with a Format 2 package.xml

Asked by Dennis Ellery on 26 Oct 2016
Latest activity Edited by Tohru Kikawada on 2 May 2019
I ran into an error when using a package.xml that is written in package format="2",
The toolbox doesn't build it's dependency messages.
For example. A custom message is written that uses a std/msg Vector3 as part of it:
In format 1 it is declared in package.xml as:
<build_depend>std_msgs</build_depend>
<run_depend>std_msgs</run_depend>
While in format 2 it's:
<depend>std_msgs</depend>
Here the tool will not build and so also not find the std_msgs.
Will this be implemented / fixed ??
(Running Ubuntu 14.04 with R2015b - student)
Thanks

The ROS message package format 2 is not currently supported. You should still be able to get it to work by changing the line:
<depend>std_msgs</depend>
to
<build_depend>std_msgs</build_depend>
