I tried viewing the stiffness parameter for the baxter robot, by executing:

rostopic echo /robot/limb/right/stiffness

but this just gives me an error:

ERROR: Cannot load message class for [MotorControlMsgs/Stiffness]. Are your messages built?

I tried searching for this message package, but only thing I'm getting is which doesn't contain stiffness parameters.

Anyone ever had similar problems or knows how to find MotorControlMsgs?

Thank you

Have you setup your Baxter ROS workspace correctly and sourced the setup.bash after catkin_make-ing it?

Edit: from reading How to read /robot/limb/left/command_joint_position? and Collision Detection over at brr-users -- which seeing your posts there you also found -- it would appear that topics carrying messages from the MotorControlMsgs package are not meant to be used by end-users. The MotorControlMsgs package is therefore not available.

Yes, all other Messages work correctly.
