i cant seem to get interactive marker topic in rviz for my custom robot. I already add dependencies in Cmakelist and package file. What do i miss?

I have a custom robot with differential drive. I got it working rviz and gazebo. Now i want to add interactive marker. I made .rviz file and use it in launch file containing a node 'interactive marker server' . when i launched the file theres a interactive marker server/update topic to subscribe. but when i dragged the interactive circle ,the robot did not move. Theres a message not error saying 'twister controller for robot' on the top of the robot

You'll have to provide some more information: ROS version, OS, what are you trying to do exactly, with which robot, what did you try yourself and what didn't work? Be precise in your questions.

Do you get any message published on the update topic of our interactive marker (when you move it in Rviz) ? Did you create a callback and make your robot move when you receive a message on this topic ?

There is this tutorial here also. But if you implement them the same way that its done in the interactive marker tutorial you should have feedback on the update topic. Can someone with more experience can enlight you.
