I have a node that subscribes to /joy topic, converts to /cmd_vel topic, and publishes to arduino via rosserial. I am receiving joy messages just fine, but when I

rosmsg show control/Velocity

(control is the name of the node, Velocity is the message), it says:

Unable to load msg [control/Velocity]: Cannot locate message [Velocity]: unknown package [control] on search path.

When I rostopic echo /cmd_vel, I get

Error: Cannot load message class for [control/Velocity]. Are your messages build?

I have tried many things. I believe that my environment variables are good, and I tried going into the root of my workspace, catkin_make clean, catkin_make, and source my devel/setup.sh file. Still, nothing seems to be working. My Velocity.msg file is in my CmakeLists.txt and the required build depends and run time depends are in my package.xml (build depend message_generation and run depend message_runtime).

Any advice would be helpful. Thanks!

Edit 1: CMakeLists.txt:

cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.8.3)

project(control)

find_package(catkin REQUIRED 
  dynamic_reconfigure
  roscpp
  message_generation
  sensor_msgs
  nav_msgs

  std_msgs
)

generate_dynamic_reconfigure_options(
  cfg/Control_Params.cfg
)

add_message_files(

   Velocity.msg
 )

generate_messages(
   DEPENDENCIES
   std_msgs
 )

catkin_package(

  LIBRARIES control
  CATKIN_DEPENDS dynamic_reconfigure message_runtime
  DEPENDS system_lib
)

include_directories(
  ${catkin_INCLUDE_DIRS}

Please add (the relevant sections of) your CMakeLists.txt (remove any boilerplate comments first please). Without more info, we can only guess. Also: which version of ROS is this?

This is for ROS Indigo. I edited my question to include my CMakeLists.txt.

It looks to be an issue either with the code or the controller I am using. I am using a Moga Pro bluetooth controller. I set it up correctly.

This is on the Jetson TK1 board if anybody is interested.

Seems to me that http://wiki.ros.org/rosmsg#rosmsg_show is saying the syntax is package/messageType for rosmsg show. Your error message also says unknown package. So:

rosmsg show control/Velocity

(control is the name of the node, Velocity is the messageType),

Try specifying package name before the slash, instead of a node name.
