I have been trying to execute hello world, but I keep on getting either

package my project name not found

or when I try rosws set my project name

I get ERROR in config: Command Requires a target workspace.

How do I create one, or what is my problem?

Thanks in advance

The error looks similar to this question. Be sure to source devel/setup.bash.

Every time I source the setup.bash, it gives me an error

The specified source space /home/(my pc id)/src does not exist

Without seeing exactly, full output, I can't tell much, but I sense that you're using a folder that's different from the tutorials. I recommend you go through again the tutorial using exactly the same files and folders name to get familiar with the concept.

The beginner tutorials here cover how to setup a ROS environment and create a package.
