Hi, everyone!

I'm installing ROS indigo on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and following the instructions on this website:

After step 1.4, I run $ sudo rosdep init, it says "sudo: rosdep: command not found". I think I've downloaded python-rosdep pack. Here's what I did:

~$ locate rosdep

~$ cd /var/cache/apt/archives
/var/cache/apt/archives$ sudo rosdep init
sudo:rosdep: command not found

Did I miss any step? Or did I do something wrong?

Thanks! Any help will be appreciated.

How you installed rosdep is the question. Did you follow that says using apt-get?

~$ locate rosdep

That just means you somehow downloaded an installer and doesn't necessarily mean it's installed.

Thank you! I truly didn't install rosdep, just downloaded it. Great thanks!
