Hi everyone, I have download the package for the sick tim 551.

When I launch, it says this :

ERROR: cannot launch node of type [sick_tim/sick_tim310]: can't locate node [sick_tim310] in package [sick_tim]

I tested it first on my dev computer on ubuntu 14.04 64 bits and it worked. Then I tested on my robot on Ubuntu 32 bits.

A likely cause for this message appearing is if you cloned the package into your workspace, but forgot to actually build it.

or did not source devel/setup.bash (or whatever your shell is)

Weird! it seems that my source was somekind corrupted. I relaunch it using :

source /opt/ros/indigo/setup.bash

@TomSon: if you haven't setup your ~/.bashrc to do this for you, you'll have to source setup.bash in every new terminal you start.

@gvdhoorn It's weird because it's the only package (for now) that I have to do this (maybe it's a issue with my shell, I also use TMUX)

That would be strange indeed. I'd expect you'd have to do this always, or otherwise non of your ROS packages (installed in /opt/ros/indigo/.. would be found.
