Installing Gazebo 1.9 on ROS Groovy


Today I wanted to update my installed gazebo (version 1.8.6) to 1.9. First I uninstalled the local installed version. Then I installed the Pre-compiled binaries on Ubuntu 12.04 following these steps:

No I want to install the gazebo_ros_pkgs too ( but there occurred some issues:

1) When I call after the Installation rosdep update the following output is printed:

reading in sources list data from /etc/ros/rosdep/sources.list.d
Ignore legacy gbpdistro "groovy"
Ignore legacy gbpdistro "hydro"
Query rosdistro index
Add distro "groovy"
Add distro "hydro"
updated cache in /home/alex/.ros/rosdep/sources.cache

...and rosdep check --from-paths . --ignore-src --rosdistro groovy:

All system dependencies have been satisified
ERROR[effort_controllers]: resource not found [control_msgs]

What does this error mean?!

2) When I call now catkin_make in may workspace, the following errors occurred:

CMake Error at /opt/ros/groovy/share/catkin/cmake/catkinConfig.cmake:72 (find_package):
  Could not find a configuration file for package control_msgs.

  Set control_msgs_DIR to the directory containing a CMake configuration file
  for control_msgs.  The file will have one of the following names:


Call Stack (most recent call first):
  ros_controllers/effort_controllers/CMakeLists.txt:19 (find_package)


-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!
make: *** [cmake_check_build_system] Error 1
Invoking "make cmake_check_build_system" failed

So what can I do to remake Gazebo working with ROS Groovy?! Do I have to update to ROS Hydro?!

Thanks for your help :)
