I'm trying to follow this tutorial link text

when i run the behaviour i get this error

Unable to import temporary behavior file: No module named src.flexbe_states.log_state

I have set up a home directory as per the instructions, when i compared the file i created following the tutorial to the installed example

this is my result

from flexbe_states.src.flexbe_states.log_state import LogState
from flexbe_states.src.flexbe_states.wait_state import WaitState

this is from the installed example

from flexbe_states.log_state import LogState
from flexbe_states.wait_state import WaitState

when edit my file it this it works but as soon as i edit my behaviour it goes back.

i have configured states to ~/catkin_ws/src/flexbe_behavior_engine/flexbe_states Im running

Ubuntu 14.4 64 bit

ROS indigo installed from debs

on a ASUS k53s I7 with 8 gis of ram on a fresh install and update

this results from the FlexBE App configuration. As you wrote, you added ~/catkin_ws/src/flexbe_behavior_engine/flexbe_states to the "State Library" panel.

Correct would be in this case: ~/catkin_ws/src/flexbe_behavior_engine/flexbe_states/src/flexbe_states (see installation guidelines on the homepage: "Make sure to add the folder which contains the states, not the ROS package itself (i.e. ... /flexbe_behavior_engine/flexbe_states/src/flexbe_states)".

I guess I need to make it more obvious, sorry! Or just make it also work this way. Just ask if there are further problems and thank you for trying FlexBE. :)

I just pushed an update. Your first configuration would now work as well and even simply passing ~/catkin_ws/src in order to use all states inside your workspace is possible.
