Hi I am following this tutorial to use numpy with rospy

when I am running

rosrun numpy_tutorial

I am getting the following error

terminate called after throwing an instance of 'rospack::Exception'
what(): error parsing manifest of package numpy_tutorial at /home/tanmay/catkin_ws/numpy_tutorial/package.xml

any suggestions what I might be doing incorrectly?

Thanks, TM

Not sure what the exact problem is, but the error is pretty clear -- package.xml in numpy_tutorial is unparseable. Perhaps post the contents of that file and we can debug what is actually wrong with it.

(as for why you're even parsing package.xml, you've made a call to roslib.load_manifest().. it should be noted, that this is not needed for an actual catkin package, and in fact, is generally recommended not to do with a catkin package. You might try removing that line also. Regardless, I'd guess that tutorial is out of date)

eah it is working after I removed the line thank you.
