Hi all, I am trying to install ROS on Mac OS X (El Capitan 10.11.4) via pip from Homebrew.

I can not proceed with installing because wstool seems to be not found as a command. When outputting my installed pip packages via pip freeze, wstool is present (wstool==0.1.13)

Does anybody have an idea how to resolve this?

Resolved, if someone runs into the same issue:

I managed to get it to work running the following command:

sudo pip install --force-reinstall -U wstool

You may run into trouble later on in the installation if you invoke pip with sudo . Are you following the instructions on the ROS wiki or Mike Purvis' script? ( )
