After following the Create_a_MoveIt_Pkg_for_an_Industrial_Robot tutorial the launch demo will not work, it reports:

ResourceNotFound: ur5_moveit_config ROS path [0]=/opt/ros/groovy/share/ros ROS path [1]=/opt/ros/groovy/share ROS path [2]=/opt/ros/groovy/stacks

When I run: roslaunch ur5_moveit_config/launch/demo.launch

I'm using ROS Indigo, so I'm not sure if my answer makes sense foor Groovy, but I think it applies for both versions (and otherwise it may lead you in the right direction).

It seems if the ur5_moveit_config package cannot be found by the roslaunch application. So did you perform the following steps:

  1. Download and install the universal_robot module, or create the ur5_moveit_config yourself using the tutorial?
  2. Then build everything, using 'catkin_make'?
  3. Setup the environment for your workspace (i.e. to set the right paths), using 'source devel/setup.bash'?
