I have been trying for a few days to run nao_driver package, with no sucess. I looked around for answers, but none of the solutions could help me. Aparently, Naoqi is set up correctly, since I can import it with "import naoqi" in python. However, when I try to run something like "LD_LIBRARY_PATH=~/nao/tools/pynaoqi-python-2.7-naoqi-1.14-linux64:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH NAO_IP= roslaunch nao_driver nao_driver_sim.launch" , I get the following errors:

@florabranchi-Dell-System-XPS-15Z:~/nao/tools/pynaoqi-python-2.7-naoqi-1.14-linux64$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=~/nao/tools/pynaoqi-python-2.7-naoqi-1.14-linux64:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH NAO_IP= roslaunch nao_driver nao_driver_sim.launch ... logging to /home/florabranchi/.ros/log/c37b6108-b373-11e3-beca-848f69cd2cc7/roslaunch-florabranchi-Dell-System-XPS-15Z-7419.log Checking log directory for disk usage. This may take awhile. Press Ctrl-C to interrupt Done checking log file disk usage. Usage is <1GB.

I have tried force_python:=true and it still doesn't work :( It seems that the process just dies, and doesn't tell me the error. Are those "No handlers could be found for logger "rosout" normal?

Does anyone have the same problem or can help me solving this?

Is there a reason why you add the pynaoqi module path to your LD_LIBRARY_PATH? I think the path should only be in your PYTHONPATH, not LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

To (possibly) get more output, you could also try to run only the nao_sensors node: "rosrun nao_driver"

As mentioned by AHornung, your problem is that you need to do:

export PYTHONPATH=~/nao/tools/pynaoqi-python-2.7-naoqi-1.14-linux64:$PYTHONPATH

(and not LD_LIBRARY_PATH). The error you get (though totally unexplicit) is typical from not finding naoqi on your PYTHONPATH

And btw, the code just changed to give a normal error code. That should appear in the next release.
