Most probably you have to add the new package path.

  • First check the ros stack paths using export | grep ROS
  • copy all the packages paths after the ROS_PACKAGE_PATH=
  • then export the new stack path for the Beginners_tutorials after the old paths using ":" some thing like that export ROS_PACKAGE_PATH=/home/user/ros/ros-pkg:/Beginners_tutorials/path
  • then use cd to the new stack folder and rosmake (if you did not do that before).

hopefully this will fix the problem.
