I am following this tutorial on tf to write a tf broadcaster from the following link

http://wiki.ros.org/tf/Tutorials/Writ...

I have ros hydro installed on Ubuntu 12.04. I have followed all the steps as shown there. But when I run the command : roslaunch learning_tf start_demo.launch, Roscore starts up and a new window opens showing a turtle. But after 5 seconds the window closes and I get the following error message.

WARNING: Metapackage "joystick_drivers" must buildtool_depend on catkin. Roslaunch got a 'No such file or directory' error while attempting to run: /home/viki/catkin_ws/src/learning_tf/nodes/turtle_tf_broadcaster.py __name:=turtle1_tf_broadcaster __log:=/home/viki/.ros/log/95d489de-30fd-11e4-a038-080027b3edc7/turtle1_tf_broadcaster-3.log Please make sure that all the executables in this command exist and have executable permission. This is often caused by a bad launch-prefix.

Somebody, Please help. I have python 3 installed on Ubuntu and I have no clue why I am getting this error.

Thanks.

quick check did you do "chmod +x nodes/turtle_tf_broadcaster.py" ?
