I modified some parameters on a file in the catkin worskpace, but nothing happens in the robot. Do i have to build the package everytime i modify something?

What kind of file is it? Is it copied to the install-directory when building? How do you read the parameter file?

If you require the changes in the publisher node to be reflected when you run it, you need to run catkin_make after making changes to the source file.
