I am not able to use roscd or rosrun commands. When I try to use rosrun it says rosrun: command not found. I already sourced the setup.bash file. I checked in /opt/ros/indigo/bin and these 2 commands are missing. What can be the problem?

Are you able to run other commands?

Please update your question with information on what OS this is, which version, version of ROS, how you installed ROS (from source, or from debians/rpms) and the exact steps you took that lead to the behaviour that you are seeing.

Sorry I actually found out I was only missing the ros-indigo-rosbash package!

In order to have a command rosrun available you need to install package ros-indigo-rosbash.

I upgraded my ubuntu kernel as part of installing the intel realsense r200 drivers / software and somehow rosrun disappeared. ?? Anyway, this solved it, thanks.

I've had rosbash disappear after doing 'sudo apt-get autoremove', too...
