Hi All,

I am having issues with ROS Kinetic and pyqtgraph. After installation of pyqtgraph and rqt_plot fails to run with the following error

RuntimeError: the PyQt4.QtCore and PyQt5.QtCore modules both wrap the QObject class

Has anybody encountered this and found a solution to the problem?

Thanks, Max

Be sure to install pyqtgraph using the latest github code. The .deb installer does not install correctly.

Download github branch.

cd into extracted folder.

run: python install

Now try running and setting the pyqtgraph option in rqt_plot.

Hope this helps, Eric H.

still works, uninstall the package pyqtgraph from the system then install from the git repo.
