Error when creating snaps for ros subscriber/publisher tutorial

I am very new to snaps. I am following this tutorial to get started with ros and snaps.

I was successful in creating the ros-base snap that contains roscore and the basic ros packages. When I try creating a snap for ros-app, I get an error

Unable to find package path: "/home/user/snap-apps/ros-app/parts/ros-app/src/src"

The problem I guess is that, it is looking the sub-directory src/src instread of just src/. Do I need to edit the snapcraft.yaml file to change some paths?

Which version of Snapcraft are you using?

It works for me, so it's possible you accidentally diverged from the tutorial somewhere along the line (e.g. the Snapcraft project isn't in the root of the workspace, etc.). That tutorial is actually a demo in the Snapcraft source tree, I suggest you start with that.

I will try again and let you know.

I was experiencing the same problem. Is your "src" folder a symbolic link? In that case, check it's an absolute one (e.g.: /home/user/catkin_ws/src) instead of a relative one (e.g: ../catkin_ws/src) otherwise it won't work.
