robot_upstart: Unable to generate launchfile

asked 2016-08-08 13:40:17 -0500

I am trying to use robot_upstart to launch a launch file of a custom package that I have made. I installed robot_upstart using: sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-robot-upstart

I then ran rosrun robot_upstart install goose_chaser_main/launch/goose.launch (which I found here) in order to create the upstart process.

No errors where thrown so I rebooted. I checked my processes and noticed that the goose start process was appearing and disappearing, so I ran sudo tail /var/log/upstart/goose.log -n 30 and got the following message:

logger: goose: Unable to generate amalgamated launchfile.

The error is coming from line 72 of the robot_upstart .git file, but I have no idea how to fix it. Any guidance would be appreciated.
