Would you please check the output of the following?

echo $ROS_PACKAGE_PATH

This will output the path you have ros installed in. Also, if you could post this, too:

cat ~/.bashrc | grep ros

For me, I see:

allenh1@muri-pc7:~$ cat ~/.bashrc | grep ros
source /opt/ros/fuerte/setup.bash

If the above line is not output, you are not properly using your ROS path. To remedy this, run the following:

echo "source /opt/ros/fuerte/setup.bash" >> ~/.bashrc && source ~/.bashrc

Would you please check the output of the following?

echo $ROS_PACKAGE_PATH

If the above line is not output, you are not properly using your ROS path. To remedy this, run the following:

echo "source /opt/ros/fuerte/setup.bash" >> ~/.bashrc && source ~/.bashrc

I have never heard of the installer failing to create "/opt/ros/fuerte/setup.bash"...

This is an interesting scenario...

Try this:

sudo apt-get remove --auto-remove ros-fuerte-desktop-full

then reinstall. This should remove it and its dependencies. The Setup files are likely not part the installed files in ros-fuerte-desktop-full.
