I am running ROS kinetic and catkin_make works fine. Then several nodes start but two don't start. Error message:

File "/opt/ros/kinetic/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/tf2_py/__init__.py", line 37, in <module> from _tf2 import * ImportError: No module named '_tf2'

When I check the environment then I have there also /opt/ros/kinetic/lib/python2.7/dist-packages

Question is what I have to do to make it running? There is no module called '_tf2' that I could install.

_tf2 is a compiled output of tf2_py which is the python wrapper of the core tf2 libray. You should make sure that tf2_py is either installed or built in your workspace and the installation directories are sourced.

Hi, how can I check the tf2_py was properly installed/built/sourced? Thanks a lot! I was following the steps shown at http://wiki.ros.org/tf/Tutorials/Introduction%20to%20tf, but at roslaunch turtle_tf turtle_tf_demo.launch I get only one turtle shown and ImportError: No module named '_tf2'.
