I am trying the tutorial with turtlesim and joystick on ROS electric, and Ubuntu 11.4. I keep getting [ERROR] [1324135517.676376697]: Client [/teleop] wants topic /joy to have datatype/md5sum [joy/Joy/e3ef016fcdf22397038b36036c66f7c8], but our version has [sensor_msgs/Joy/5a9ea5f83505693b71e785041e67a8bb]. Dropping connection. I know that the call back has to be changed to sensor_msgs, but I am not sure how to do this.

Thank you, Morpheus

Hi, Go to the teleop_base.cpp file and search for Joy::joy, it will in the joy_cb callback function, change it to sensor_msgs::joy. Check if the

#include "sensor_msgs/Joy.h

is included in the file if not include it. rosmake the teleop_base and it should work.

Hope this helps, Karthik

I've ticketed updating all the tutorials to use the new sensor_msgs::Joy message here:

Its just about the type of the object. In your teleop_base.cpp there will be a call back function in expecting a msg of the form Joy::joy you have to change that type to sensor_msgs::joy. Include the above mentioned header file also.

if you don't know what is call back function then you have to go through the tutorials
