Package Setup

In this exercise, we’ll build our package dependencies and configure the package for the Qt Creator IDE.

Import Workspace into QT

  1. In QT do the following:
File -> New -> Other Project -> ROS Workspace
  1. Fill the Project Name and Location information
  • Name: pick_and_place
  • Distribution: melodic
  • Build System: CatkinTools
  • Workspace Path ~/optimized_planning_ws
  1. Click next to go to the summary and leave version control to defaults
  2. With the project open, type ctrl+b to build the project. By building the project through QT Creator, it allows the IDE to enable features like autocomplete effectively.
