For some reason, I am having troubles with empy. The CMake scripts only find the empy module, but then the module is called as a normal script:

-- Found PY_em: /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/em
-- Using empy: /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/em
/usr/bin/python2: can't find '__main__' module in '/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/em'
CMake Error at cmake/safe_execute_process.cmake:11 (message):

I can only solve it by adding -DEMPY_SCRIPT=/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/ in the PKGBUILD.

Bumped, should be good now. Dunno why they changed the tarballs, but whatever.

hi!, python2-catkin-pkg was renamed to python2-catkin_pkg, could you update this?

According to it should be possible to pick the python version for catkin at build time, such that it uses the suffixed executable instead of a plain one.
I am not sure though whether this will extend to packages that are built later using catkin, I did not have the time to test it.

Ah, yes, I totally forgot to mention this bit. There's a slightly-hacky way to fix this that I've been using. Add the following to your .bashrc (or equivalent):

alias catkin_make="catkin_make -DPYTHON_EXECUTABLE=/usr/bin/python2 -DPYTHON_INCLUDE_DIR=/usr/include/python2.7 -DPYTHON_LIBRARY=/usr/lib/"

If anyone knows a nicer way to solve this problem, I'd love to hear it.

Hey, thanks for creating all these packets! I was just starting to try and do it myself when I saw that you did it yesterday.

There is an issue though with this packet, catkin_make will fail if one does not supply "-DPYTHON_EXECUTABLE:FILEPATH=/usr/bin/python2" because the default executable uses python3. For me it failed because only python2-empy is installed, there should be other scenarios where this breaks, too.
Would it be possible to statically fix this?
