Hi, I'm new to ROS so probably my error is silly. I'm trying to run this open source project on Baxter. I have pasted the master branch under ros_ws/src. When I try to run the file like that, rosrun organizer-baxter-master, I'm getting the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/anton/ros_ws/src/organizer-baxter-master/src/", line 3, in <module>
    import roslib; roslib.load_manifest('organizer')

    sys.path = _generate_python_path(package_name, _rospack) + sys.path

What am I doing wrong?

This looks like a rosbuild package.

It looks like it's expecting to be placed in a folder named organizer but instead you've placed it in a folder named organizer-baxter-master. You may want to try renaming the folder to see if that helps.
