rosrun will not execute despite successful build

asked 2014-10-14 19:40:11 -0600

After a successful catkin_make, I made sure to source devel/setup.bash inside the catkin workspace and ran roscore. The output of echo "$ROS_PACKAGE_PATH" is "/home/alex/kinect_bench/src:/opt/ros/hydro/share:/opt/ros/hydro/stacks".

I get his warning from catkin_make:

also, when I run roswtf the output is:

The add_executable(grabber src/openni_grabber.cpp) line in your CMakeLists is creating an executable named grabber. Therefore, the correct command to run your program is:

rosrun grabber grabber
