I'm new to youBot and ROS and I run into a problem. When launching the following command for simulating in rviz:

roslaunch youbot_description youbot_arm_publisher.launch,

I get the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
ResourceNotFound: gazebo_worlds

System: ROS Hydro and youbot Remastered Ubuntu 0.4.0 (Ubuntu 12.04)



Full Output:

The package youbot_description (part of youbot-ros-pkg) seems only to be available for ROS electric and fuerte, not hydro. You should use ROS Fuerte instead.
