Anaconda has probably installed a new version of python and more importantly updated the PYTHONPATH so that it no longer includes the path of the required ROS packages. You should be able to add the necessary path back in by adding a line to your .bashrc file.

Your PYTHONPATH envrionment variable should include a path to /opt/ros/<ros_version>/lib/python2.7/dist-packages, if it doesn't then this may be the cause of your problem. You can check this with the following command:


If you add export PYTHONPATH=$PYTHONPATH:/opt/ros/<ros_version>/lib/python2.7/dist-packages to your bashrc file and re-run it then this should hopefully fix your problem.
