CMakePackageConfigHelpers.cmake is in the cmake package. What version of cmake do you have installed?

# 3 .

Post #3 shows information concerning 'aptitude' only, not cmake !

This is one of the ways to know the cmake version : $ cmake -version

Or use 'dpkg' : Get information about an installed package : $ dpkg -s cmake

Im sorry, I screwed up! Now, this is what you did require - version 2.8.7:
michal@mironet:~$ cmake --version
cmake version 2.8.7

michal@mironet:~$ dpkg -s cmake
Package: cmake
Status: install ok installed
Multi-Arch: foreign
Priority: optional
Section: devel
Installed-Size: 10446
Maintainer: Ubuntu Developers <>
Architecture: amd64
Version: 2.8.7-0ubuntu5
Depends: libarchive12, libc6 (>= 2.15), libcurl3-gnutls (>= 7.16.2-1), libexpat1 (>= 1.95.8), libgcc1 (>= 1:4.1.1), libstdc++6 (>= 4.6), libxmlrpc-core-c3, zlib1g (>= 1:, cmake-data (= 2.8.7-0ubuntu5), procps

Description: cross-platform, open-source make system
 CMake is used to control the software compilation process using
 simple platform and compiler independent configuration files. CMake
 generates native makefiles and workspaces that can be used in the
 compiler environment of your choice. CMake is quite sophisticated: it
 is possible to support complex environments requiring system
 configuration, pre-processor generation, code generation, and template
 CMake was developed by Kitware as part of the NLM Insight
 Segmentation and Registration Toolkit project. The ASCI VIEWS project
 also provided support in the context of their parallel computation
 environment. Other sponsors include the Insight, VTK, and VXL open
 source software communities.
