I was trying to use BRIDE in ROS FUERTE as sain in the page but i cannot create a workspace in catkin because the command catkin_init_workspace generates this error:

catkin_init_workspace: command not found

Then I tried to create the workspace with rosbuild as said in but I had another problem when i use the command:

rosws init ~/fuerte_workspace /opt/ros/fuerte

an error is displayed:

ImportError: No module named vcs_abstraction

and when i tried to install rosinstall: sudo apt-get install python-rosinstall

Another error is displayed:

Yes, you should use rosbuild in ROS Fuerte. Maybe you can reference the Ros answer: link text

Fuerte does not have catkin, that is why the catkin_init_workspace command does not work.

You will either have to update to a newer version of ROS like Hydro or Indigo or you will have to get a rosbuild version of BRIDE if it is available. I'm not sure if there are tutorials for using BRIDE with rosbuild, perhaps someone else can answer that.

I would recommend you update your ROS version though because Fuerte has been unsupported for quite some time now. I would recommend using Indigo, as it will be supported for another 4+ years.
