I have gotten fairly far along in building a Ubuntu 14.04 Indigo on a beaglebone Black and the install went through the 'robot' rosdep install .

As a matter of fact I see this:

ubuntu@arm:~/ros_catkin_ws/src/common_msgs/sensor_msgs/msg$ ls CameraInfo.msg JoyFeedback.msg PointCloud.msg ChannelFloat32.msg JoyFeedbackArray.msg PointCloud2.msg CompressedImage.msg LaserEcho.msg PointField.msg FluidPressure.msg LaserScan.msg Range.msg Illuminance.msg MagneticField.msg RegionOfInterest.msg Image.msg MultiDOFJointState.msg RelativeHumidity.msg Imu.msg MultiEchoLaserScan.msg Temperature.msg JointState.msg NavSatFix.msg TimeReference.msg Joy.msg NavSatStatus.msg

I see this after installing ros_arduino_bridge and rebuilding via rosdep.

ubuntu@arm:~$ locate sensor_msgs|grep Range /home/ubuntu/ros_catkin_ws/src/common_msgs/sensor_msgs/msg/Range.msg /home/ubuntu/ros_catkin_ws/src/genmsg/test/files/sensor_msgs/msg/Range.msg

so it isn't anywhere in the executable path.

Here is where it complains during launch:

/ros_arduino_python/", line 24, in <module> from sensor_msgs.msg import Range ImportError: No module named sensor_msgs.msg


rosdep install --from-paths src --ignore-src --rosdistro indigo -y

gives one error message:

Reading state information... Done E: Unable to locate package collada-dom-dev ERROR: the following rosdeps failed to install apt: command [sudo apt-get install -y collada-dom-dev] failed

after a apt-get and rosdep update the same error occurs.

Not a major or urgent issue for me, just trying to learn how things work by kicking the tires.

if you're only at the rosdep stage, nothing has been built. It's just resolving system dependencies. You need to continue down the instructions to get to the build step.
