I got an Problem with my Current ROS. I download an current ROS Indigo 64 Bit VM from nootrix and i want to install the ptam package from ROS.

I have already done the catkin_make from ptam git repo.

But when i want to start the launcher with

roslaunch ptam cameracalibrator.launch

I got this error: [cameracalibrator.launch] is neither a launch file in package [ptam] nor is [ptam] a launch file name

You need to source your workspace using the following command.

 source ~/your_catkin_workspace/devel/setup.bash

By that a new package is added to your path and thus known to the ROS environment.

Thanks it works.

I have another question. At the tutorial on Step 4 Calibrating the camera it said that i should be edit the PtamFixParams.yaml and cameracalibrator.launch file.

In which Path are they? Are they in my catkin workspace?

I only find the PtamFixParams.yaml in source
