I am new to Ubuntu and ROS. Upon opening a new terminal in Ubuntu, I get this error. I tried opening the bashrc file but It seems to be empty.

bash: /home/rma/prac/devel/setup.bash: No such file or directory
bash: /home/rma/trials/devel/setup.bash: No such file or directory   
bash: /home/rma/T/devel/setup.bash: No such file or directory
bash: /home/rma/abc/devel/setup.bash: No such file or directory
bash: /home/rma/RMP/devel/setup.bash: No such file or directory

I am running ROS Jade on Ubuntu 14.04

I had old workspaces which I deleted following the information given here . I think there was something left which wasn't removed with the workspaces.

What could be the error and how can I solve it?

Any suggestions or comments will be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Did you look into bashrc or .bashrc? I seems there are some entries left that you put in there linking to your old ones.

Adding to dornhege, check specifically for

source /home/rma/prac/devel/setup.bash

and likewisein your .bashrc file

I have same idea with dornhege. check

source /home/rma/prac/devel/setup.bash


$ gedit ~/.bashrc
edit flag offensive delete link more


That solved the problem. I edited the .bashrc file and it worked.

The steps mentioned by @LeeJaemin worked. I opened the .bashrc file and removed the lines with the missing paths manually.
