I've installed: ROS Indigo Trusty (14.04)

I'm stuck in the ROS installation at 3. Managing your environment

When I run the command:

$ export | grep ROS

The terminal outputs:

$: command not found

The same thing happens when I attempt any of the commands there after on the guide.

Checking ROS Installation

When I run the command:

which roscore

The terminal outputs:


Attempting to uninstall ROS

When I run the command:

sudo apt-get remove ros

The terminal outputs:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package ros

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Is your shell a bash? The first "command not found" error looks odd. apt-get remove ros won't work, because there is no package named ros. To uninstall put the packages you used from the install tutorial.

The command is export | grep ROS. You have put a $ sign before that, that's why you are getting that error!

This is the solution to the problem, so I converted this to an answer.
