    As a trivial example, a given resistor value could have many footprints, since you placed a "generic" resistor and gave it a value, there is no way that Capture could assume a footprint. Specify the Value of the PCB Footprint property in the schematic. For the purposes of experimentation, use the footprints defined in share\pcb\pcb_lib\symbols of the installation, if you need some more specific requirements you will need to design some footprints - for PCB Editor see the algrolibdev.pdf in the doc\algrolibdev directory in the installation.
