I am quite new to ROS and ubuntu but whatever i try i am keep getting the error so i hope someone can help me out! I need to install 2 packages: 1. ardrone_autonomy 2. tum_ardrone

i followed these steps for both packages:

# cd into ros root dir roscd

# clone repository git clone git:// tum_ardrone

# add to ros path (if required) export ROS_PACKAGE_PATH=$ROS_PACKAGE_PATH:pwd/tum_ardrone

# build package (may take up to 10 minutes) rosmake tum_ardrone

even though they are both in opt/ros/hydro i can only run ardrone_autonomy whenever i try to run tum_ardrone i am getting the error.

leroy@leroy-pc:~$ env |grep ROS







In my .bashrc file the source is: source /opt/ros/hydro/setup.bash

i am using ROS hydro and ubuntu 12.04.

thank you in advance!

You need to extend your ROS_PACKAGE_PATH when you want to use it. You mentioned that you added the tum_ardrone folder to it (add to ros path).

But later your environment does not contain that anymore. You have to prepend / append that folder everytime you want to use rosbuild packages from that location.

I supposed you have tum_ardrone in a workspace.Have you tried to do source .devel/setup.bash in your workspace?

If you do that and it doesn´t work it´s a installation problem.
