[ros-users] Catkin Eclipse Integration

Hi all,

I`m trying to use Eclipse with Catkin. I`m having some problems with Index, for example, I have just tried to do this tutorial: http://www.ros.org/wiki/pcl/Tutorials and Eclipse doesn`t recognizes the index to "sensor_msgs::PointCloud2" (all these type).
I`m able to compile the package into Eclipse(CTRL+B), it is working fine, my problem is with the Eclipse indexer.
My steps to make Eclipse "works" on catkin were:

$cd ~/catkin_ws
$catkin_make --force-cmake -G"Eclipse CDT4 - Unix Makefiles" -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug -DCMAKE_ECLIPSE_MAKE_ARGUMENTS=-j8
 $source ~/catkin_ws/devel/setup.bash

File -> Import -> General -> Existing Projects into Workspace...
When I open the .cpp file, I got some errors:
Type 'sensor_msgs::PointCloud2' could not be resolved
Type 'sensor_msgs::PointCloud2ConstPtr' could not be resolved
But, how I said, I`m able to compile the package, I just have NOT the indexes for this type.
Can you guys help me to make Eclipse index this?

Thank you,

Andre Barcelos.
