Please refrain from adding pleas for help to your question. We already know that you need help, otherwise you wouldn't be posting here. And you probably won't get answers any sooner.

It looks like you do not have the "p3dx_mover" package. Since there's no binary for this package, you will have to install the source code into your workspace.

  1. Go to the github page where the p3dx_mover is located. ( )

  2. Clone the repository inside the src folder of your catkin workspace (i.e., catkin_ws/src/).

  3. Run $ catkin_make from your workspace.

  4. Now a $ rospack find p3dx_mover should give the location where the package is installed.
