Fix the "google/protobuf/descriptor.proto: File Not Found" Issue

| Comments

Today when I use “protoc” to compile some protobuf files, I get the “google/protobuf/descriptor.proto: file not found” error.

That means the protobuf files I’m compiling uses this “descriptor.proto” file but cannot find it. I googled this error and here it says that on Debian we can install “libprotobuf-dev” and “libprotoc-dev” packages to fix this issue. However I’m using Mac. This doesn’t work.

Then I found the “descriptor.proto” file can be found in the official ”protobuf” project. After that the fix is easy.

git clone https://github.com/protocolbuffers/protobuf.git
cd protobuf
git checkout v2.5.0

After that, using the following command to compile and the issue is gone:

1
protoc -I ~/code/github/protobuf/src something.proto

Today when I run a Gradle build I get the following error:
