To: william at osrfoundation.org, Julius Kammerl <julius at kammerl.de>

Hi all,
I set up ROS hydro these minutes on a plain Ubuntu LTS 12.04 (32bit, on a
devel machine that has been in use for some time) and wanted to compile a
package that we're developing with catkin. The package compiles on other
machines, but here cmake complained with:

CMake Error at /opt/ros/hydro/share/pcl_ros/**cmake/pcl_rosConfig.cmake:98

  Project 'pcl_ros' specifies '/usr/include/ni' as an include dir, which is

  not found.  It does neither exist as an absolute directory nor in

  '/opt/ros/hydro//usr/include/**ni'.  Ask the maintainer 'William Woodall

  <william at osrfoundation.org>, Julius Kammerl<julius at kammerl.de>' to fix it.

Call Stack (most recent call first):

  /opt/ros/hydro/share/catkin/**cmake/catkinConfig.cmake:72 (find_package)

  argos3d_p100_ros_pkg/**CMakeLists.txt:14 (find_package)

... we're not using openni in any way, but i tried to install the openni
packages, and
found that the libopenni0 is causing the problem -
