Hi, I faced similar issue. It is the version control issue. I went to the link"> and downloaded files and folders manually. And placed them in the same tree structure as given in the server and followed the rest of the process in the tutorial It worked for me. Let me know if you face any issues in the process. Hope this helps.

Thanks, Karthik

To move the robot you should have the teleop_base installed. You can check the other answer that posted. Pls check the topics where the nodes are publishing using either

rostopic list



Thanks, Karthik

Hi all, I am totally new to ROS, I know really little about it. I have a task of using ROSARIA to run my pioneer robot.

Initially I also had the problem of Installing the package, but I tried doing the 2nd method

$ sudo rosinstall /opt/ros//electric/ ''

I saw it got installed.

when I run rosmake ROSARIA I get the following error:

[ rosmake ] Packages requested are: ['ROSARIA']
[ rosmake ] Logging to directory/home/mycomp/.ros/rosmake/rosmake_output-20111115-194506 [ rosmake ] Expanded args ['ROSARIA'] to: []
[ rosmake ] WARNING: The following args could not be parsed as stacks or packages: ['ROSARIA'] [ rosmake ] ERROR: No arguments could be parsed into valid package or stack names.

then I noticed that in my folder I had a file ".hgignore" missing in the installed in directory, I tried to create but as it has no name I couldn't, I am not sure If i am doing the right thing and is that file needed ?? rest all the files were proper.

Need help in this regard.

try this. Put the cursor in stack directory and type this hg clone after that try rosmake again.

Hi you must put the hg folder in your ROS stack , or in your secondary Ros_package_path . is it in correct path?

I cloned the directories with

hg clone

Now, I have problems compiling the package.

{__________________________________________________________________ make wipe make[1]: it go to the directory <</opt>> rm –rf bluild/Aria-2.7.2 Aria rm –f *~installed rm –f build/ARIA-2.7.2.tgz make[1]: it leave the directory <</opt>> touch wiped touch: can't do 'touch’ by <<wiped>>: Permiss refused _____________________________________________________________________}

Change the permissions of the folder and compile the package again.

Pls check the teleop_base node that comes with rosaria. It works and you can create your nodes based on this node.
