Subscriber in sample_app of android_ndk not working

Hello everybody,

I'm currently trying to port a c++ Desktop Applicatioon to Android. I have been able to build the andoird_ndk sample app following this tutorial:

But when I start the app and publish a message from my workstation as described in the tutorial, the callback is never called, as i have verified with logcat.

To check the general connection, i have modified the test.cpp file to publish a single message before entering the while-loop and i am able to receive this message on my workstation.

Does anyone have an idea, what could cause this issue?

(Since I'm new to ROS, tell me if you need further information)

After some debugging i found out that my network was not set up properly. I had to set the ROS_IP environment variable to my local ip.

I have the same problem that cannot ping each other by name and solve this problem by doing this:

1.In ros master PC shell setup ROS_IP before you run roscore service is your local ip.

u64@u64-rosmaster:~$ export ROS_IP=

u64@u64-rosmaster:~$ roscore

2.edit ros master PC /etc/hosts add your phone ip and name like phone

good luck!
