Hi again, Last time with help of tfoote I was able to install ros-diamondback-turtlebot on TrimSlice which is ARM architecture. This was on Ubuntu 11.4. Next, I've installed developer kit on my desktop - no problem here. After that I suppose to configure my workspace based on instructions from this page - but I stuck there. The reason is that on command: #!/bin/sh source /opt/ros/electric/setup.bash I'm getting: -bash: /opt/ros/electric/setup.bash: No such file or directory I have empty /opt/ folder on my TrimSlice (btw, this is not an ad, I don't know how to call it in another way) Any ideas how I can fix it? While I was installing from source codes I didn't have any problems (setups were finished successfully without errors). Thanks.

You installed ROS diamondback but you're following a tutorial which expects you to have installed ROS electric.

Most tutorials will work for both, but you'll need to translate the instructions to use diamondback paths. Or you can install the electric debs.

If there's nothing in /opt (and you haven't installed in, say, ~/ros from source), then you haven't actually installed ROS at all; is it possible that you've installed it on the robot, but not on your desktop?
