How to build with catkin

$ cd ~/catkin_ws/src/
$ git clone https://github.com/laboshinl/loam_velodyne.git
$ cd ~/catkin_ws
$ catkin_make -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release 
$ source ~/catkin_ws/devel/setup.bash


roslaunch loam_velodyne loam_velodyne.launch

In second terminal play sample velodyne data from VLP16 rosbag:

rosbag play ~/Downloads/velodyne.bag 

Or read from velodyne VLP16 sample pcap:

roslaunch velodyne_pointcloud VLP16_points.launch pcap:="$HOME/Downloads/velodyne.pcap"


multiScanRegistration crashes right after playing bag file

Issues #71 and #7 address this problem. The current known solution is to build the same version of PCL that you have on your system from source, and set the CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH accordingly so that catkin can find it. See this issue for more details.
