I have finished the above installation of ROS Hydro,when I want to install rosinstall,Ubuntu12.10 terminal warm the following: dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of python-wstool: python-wstool depends on python:any (>= 2.7.1-0ubuntu2).

dpkg: error processing python-wstool (--configure): dependency problems - leaving unconfigured No apport report written because the error message indicates its a followup error from a previous failure. dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of python-rosinstall: python-rosinstall depends on python-wstool (>= 0.1.1); however: Package python-wstool is not configured yet.

dpkg: error processing python-rosinstall (--configure): dependency problems - leaving unconfigured No apport report written because the error message indicates its a followup error from a previous failure. Errors were encountered while processing: python-wstool python-rosinstall E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Does it get better if you run sudo apt-get install -f ?

It looks like the dependencies for the python-wstool package aren't satisfied properly. Did you install it through apt-get? Which version of python do you have installed?

I get the same error message. Is there anyone who has any idea on this?

I had a similar problem. I was able to find the solution through some searching. Here is the solution:

  • First of all, install "pip" if you don't already have it. Here's a useful link to do that...

  • Next...run the following from the terminal:

    sudo pip install -U rosdep rosinstall_generator wstool rosinstall

...it should now be working.

Hi, I try this and it gets me ImportError: no module named setuptools. I try to install it, but without success.

How about "sudo pip install -U wstool" ? And then "sudo pip install -U rosinstall"
