Could not load controller 'smart_arm_controller', why?

I have the following parameter on the server:

 /smart_arm/smart_arm_controller/type =

and in a launch file I do

 node name="controller_spawner" pkg="controller_manager" type="spawner" respawn="false"
        output="screen" ns="/smart_arm" args="smart_arm_controller

then why do I get the following error message:

[ERROR] [1428415830.676479048, 0.952000000]: Could not load controller 'smart_arm_controller' because controller type 'robot_mechanism_controllers/JointTrajectoryActionController' does not exist.

Note that I do have the package robot_mechanism_controllers installed.

I am at a loss here.

I'll answer my own question. I should have used the package pr2_controller_manager.

That didn't work either, but I'll ask another question about that.

I currently use as type: joint_state_controller/JointStateController this works fine now. This is on kinetic
