Have you tried running this?

rospack profile

This should crawl your workspace and update the list of available packages for rosrun


Looking better at your report, it looks like your are having problems with DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH. You can find the fix in this github comment: . I'll copy-paste it here for reference:

quick-and-dirty fix for this (for anyone else having trouble) was to add

export DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=$DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH:/opt/ros/indigo/lib

to the start of /opt/ros/indigo/bin/rosrun, which resolves the issue.
