I want to get the global position of the robot by using rostopic echo /odom/pose/pose after reading through this page https://www.packtpub.com/books/conten... . However, I got the following error "WARNING topic [/odom/pose/pose/] does not appear to be published yet"

How exactly can I get the global position of the robot at any time I want?

You get that error because you must at first launch:

$ roscore

and the position can you read simply doing:

$ rostopic echo /odom

Here a possible output:

Anyway I don't think you have clear how to use the frameworks ROS (it is normal at the beginning), so I suggest you again to read a book on how to setup your robot from scratch.
