I am using Robotino Festo. I want to execute Dijkstra algorithm which comes with the navigation stack in global planner folder. Every time I try to execute with rosrun there comes an error which says no executable found. How do I execute this algorithm from catkin workspace?

I am using Indigo. I downloaded the navigation stack from Github. I compiled using catkin_make.

There isn't enough information here to answer your question. Please be specific about which version of ROS you're using, the tutorial you're following (if there is one), where you downloaded the code from, how you compiled it, the exact command that you're trying to run, and the exact error message.

We'll literally need to know the exact commands and the exact errors. What text are you entering into the command prompt and what text is output?

It sounds like rosrun isn't found. That's caused by not setting up your environment correctly. Make sure you've run the workspace creation tutorial. And remember, you need to add the two source lines to the shell startup script.

I think the main problem here is that Dijkstra in move_base is part of the global planner plugin. Therefore it is just a library and not an executable. Hence, you cannot execute Dijkstra as a standalone component.
