I am new to ROS, wanted to experiment with publishing and subscribing. The basic codes available are easy to run. Now let us say I have downloaded a package, My_Pkg, in its msg folder there is a file my_msg.msg where they have defined a message by name MSG.

My question is how do i publish or subscribe for this message: The simple statement : pub=rospy.Publisher('topic_name', MSG) Results in error that MSG is not defined. If I import: from My_Pkg.MSG import MSG Still error no module named Console.

Solved it: First Run rosmsg list, it will list all the messages, choose the one you were looking for so in above case it is simply: from my_pkg.msg import MSG and it works
