Hi all,

I am new to ROS

My question is similar to a previous question asked.

I am following the tutorial

And I am stuck with the robot_setup_tf part. Whereby I run the command

rosrun robot_setup_tf tf_broadcaster

Initially I get

package robot_setup_tf not found

I have tried the sourcing the setup.bash file in my catkin_ws/devel, (From the 1st link)

source /path/to/your/catkin_ws/devel/setup.bash

It solves the previous error, however, now I get a new error

Couldn't find executable named tf_brodcaster below /home/user1/catkin_ws/src/robot_setup_tf

I am running on ROS indigo. Would appreciate assistance!

Thanks alot in advance!

"Couldn't find executable named tf_brodcaster below [..]"

Is this an actual copy/paste? Because there is a typo there: it's tf_broadcaster, not tf_brodcaster (note the missing a).

Apologies for the typo. Yes it worked after I fixed the typo! Thanks for spotting it! Thanks again for your help!
