rospack depends1 beginner_tutorials [Package not found]

Hello,

I'm really new at using ROS and I was doing some tutorials.

The tutorial I'm actually stuck on is the following: http://wiki.ros.org/ROS/Tutorials/Cre...

I have a problem when I do the following command :

`rospack depends1 beginner_tutorials`

I have the following error :

[rospack] Error: no such package beginner_tutorials

So I'm wondering why since the command I ran previously to this one was :

$ catkin_create_pkg beginner_tutorials std_msgs rospy roscpp

This command should create the package but it apparently doesn't. I'm wondering what I missed.

When I tried the command :

roswtf

This is what it return :

Loaded plugin tf.tfwtf

Package: beginner_tutorials

Cannot find dependencies for package [beginner_tutorials]: missing beginner_tutorials

ROS path [0]=/opt/ros/indigo/share/ros

ROS path [1]=/home/anon/catkin_ws/src

ROS path [2]=/opt/ros/indigo/share

ROS path [3]=/opt/ros/indigo/stacks

Does anybody understand my mistake ?

Ok so I understood my problem.

The solution is before to do the command:

$ catkin_create_pkg beginner_tutorials std_msgs rospy roscpp

We need to be located in : ~/catkin_ws/src

For some reason I was in ~/catkin_ws and thought it was the right place to create the Package.

You might need to rebuild your workspace before your new package is findable:

cd ~/catkin_ws
catkin_make
. devel/setup.bash
rospack depends1 beginner_tutorials

(If this works, please let me know and I'll update the tutorial)
