I am having problems with image_view on ROS Kinetic.

I first noticed it when I tried running

rosrun image_view image_view image:=/camera/image_raw

and I got the error

[rospack] Error: package 'image_view' not found

I confirmed that rospack cannot find it by running

rospack find image_view

and I get the same error.

I tried installing the image_view package with:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-image-view

with the following output:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package ros-kinetic-image-view

My /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list file is correct based on the installation instructions. I tried the "set up your keys" step again as well, no change.

The strangest part is it is running just fine on one computer, but not on another. So I know image-view exists for kinetic.

EDIT: I'm running Ubuntu 16.04 on an Intel Joule 570x development board. It has an Intel Atom processor on board.

What OS/platform/arch are you on?

You've stated that you've done everything correctly, but it's not working. Please share your sources otherwise we can't reproduce to try to help you. There's clearly something different between the computers so please share anything else that's different too.

Build from source (assuming your workspace is located in ~/ and named catkin_ws:

source /opt/ros/kinetic/setup.bash

cd ~/catkin_ws/src && git clone

cd ~/catkin_ws && catkin_make --only-pkg-with-deps image_view

Now you should be able to find the package:

source ~/catkin_ws/devel/setup.bash

rospack find image_view
