I got this error when I try to add ROS to a existing project. To slove this probelm you can check your file in this two ways:
1. Check File .bashrc
TO check whether you current project ROS path is included in ROS_PACKAGE_PATH, for me , I should add below into my file:
export ROS_PACKAGE_PATH= /home/shinan/Project/Learn-ORB-VIO-Stereo-Mono:/home/shinan/Project/Learn-ORB-VIO-Stereo-Mono/Examples/ROS
2. Check your current CMakeLIsts.txt
TO check that before you use rosbuild_add_executable, did you add ?
These two line should in the beginning of your file right just after cmake_minimum_required().
WHY: To use any of the ROS macros, you must first do this:
This line brings in the rosbuild.cmake file, which defines the macros described below.
