i am currently working with the tutorials and i got stuck. Let me explain the problem: in the tutorial about roslaunch it says "now let's create a launch file called turtlemimic.launch and paste the following:..... " i created the file using "touch turtlemimic.launch.xml" and i wrote the code using nano.
when i type "roslaunch beginner_tutorials turtlemimic.launch" i get: [turtlemimic.launch] is neither a launch file in package [beginner_tutorials] nor is [beginner_tutorials] a launch file name The traceback for the exception was written to the log file

I dont get what the problem is. Any help would be appreciated Thank you!

Launch files have a .launch extension. Only give launch files a .xml extension if you don't want them to be included in the auto-complete list (ie: when you press tab tab).
