Hi, I'm new to ROS. I'm following the tutorial:

when I do:

rosmake pr2_gazebo

I get the following error:

rosmake ] Packages requested are: ['pr2_gazebo']
[ rosmake ] Logging to directory/home/randaz/.ros/rosmake/rosmake_output-20111110-144213 [ rosmake ] Expanded args ['pr2_gazebo'] to: []
[ rosmake ] WARNING: The following args could not be parsed as stacks or packages: ['pr2_gazebo'] [ rosmake ] ERROR: No arguments could be parsed into valid package or stack names.

I also cannot do:

roslaunch pr2_gazebo pr2.launch [pr2_gazebo] is not a package or launch file name

I don't know if something is missing in my installation. I installed:

sudo apt-get install ros-electric-desktop-full


sudo apt-get install ros-electric-wg-pr2-apps

Do I need something else? I'm using Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric

Thank you

Since you're running Ubuntu, you can ignore any rosmake instructions and install the debs instead. All you should need to do is

apt-get install ros-electric-pr2-simulator

then start with step 2 from the tutorial that you linked.

I can't find the package ros-electric-pr2-simulator for my Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric (I also gave a look to the file

On the contrary, I noticed that the package is present in the previous distribution Ubuntu 11.04 Natty.

Should I install it from natty? Or the package for Oneiric is in preparation and I have just to wait a little more?
