So there is I have reinstall and uninstall some urdf and liburdfdom files And i couldnt rosdep install urdfdom and pr2_description package .. so when i command roswtf command there is

atilay@atilayLnxPC:~$ roswtf
Loaded plugin tf.tfwtf
Package: urdfdom
Cannot find dependencies for package [urdfdom]: missing urdfdom
ROS path [0]=/opt/ros/indigo/share/ros
ROS path [1]=/opt/ros/indigo/share
ROS path [2]=/opt/ros/indigo/stacks

So i want to reinstall ROS /indigo , I am using ubuntu 14.04 Trusty , and I am new in Linux/ ubuntu.


I found the solution that is here So i Uninstall ROS and I am going to install again by the way should I restart my computer or backup my system ? because my catkin_ws folders do still exist

Does apt-get install ros-indigo-urdfdom fix the problem?

@gvdhoorn Okey, thank you , I reinstalled ROS/ indigo on my ubuntu trusty, there is the question should I install urdfdom ? or urdfdom was replaced with urdf and urdf_parser_plugin ?
