ngrennan gravatar image fails on Fuerte after trying to import roslib.rostime. It seems like this problem can be fixed by replacing all 3 instances of "roslib.rostime" in the code with "rospy.rostime" (although I haven't thoroughly tested this yet). I don't have any experience with the patching process, but I wanted to get this fix out there, and I would appreciate it if someone could update the code. Here was the original error:

Traceback (most recent call last): File "/opt/ros/fuerte/stacks/brown_remotelab/rosbridge/bin/", line 2, in <module> from ROSProxy import ROSProxy File "/opt/ros/fuerte/stacks/brown_remotelab/rosbridge/bin/ROSProxy/", line 1, in <module> from ROSProxy import ROSProxy File "/opt/ros/fuerte/stacks/brown_remotelab/rosbridge/bin/ROSProxy/", line 6, in <module> import roslib.rostime ImportError: No module named rostime

Sorry it took so long to get this fixed, but the latest experimental version of rosbridge passes our regression test and should be fully Fuerte compatible.

As soon as we've done enough testing to make sure there are no hidden gotcha's we'll release a deb (apt-get) version.

In the meantime you can get this version via the usual SVN mechanism:

svn co rosbridge

As I said, we're definitely looking to get this version thoroughly tested. Please let us know if you run into any further issues.

I encountered the same problem here. When I tried to run rosbridge,it gave me the error with yours. I installed the rosbridge as a fuerte version: sudo apt-get install ros-fuerte-brown-remotelab. Since it is updated. why do I still have this problem? Also, I tried to run: svn co rosbridge

it says: svn: 'rosbridge' is already a working copy for a different URL

so what should I do? Thanks.
