Runtime Error with Image Transport in Eclipse IDE

Hi guys,

I have configured the Eclipse as my IDE and I am having no problems during compile time for my ROS packages. Once I run or enter the Debug mode, if there is an image_transport object use, it will immediately cause runtime error showing this error message:

[rospack] Error: package 'image_transport' not found terminate called after throwing an instance of 'pluginlib::ClassLoaderException' what(): Unable to find package: image_transport

When I try to run the same node outside the Eclipse environment I have no such problems. Do you have any idea what might be causing this?

Thank you!

You need to have your .bashrc environment properly sourced. As stated in the documentation, you should load your .bashrc environment with Eclipse, by launching it from the command line via $ bash -i -c "eclipse" . For convenience, you can also set this automatically by changing the Exec= line in your eclipse.desktop launcher.

For example, I did

$ vim ~/.local/share/applications/eclipse.desktop`

For example, my eclipse.desktop file contains this:

Exec=bash -i -c /MY_PATH_TO_ECLIPSE/eclipse

Then, you may drag this eclipse.desktop file to the side bar.
