Hello,

I have downloaded the possible tools to run the erractic_robot in gazebo but when I try to roslaunch (roslaunch erratic_description erratic_empty_world.launch) it, it gives me an error:

[erratic_description] is not a package or launch file name

I have the erractic_description and I can look into the folder that the roslaunch is trying to access but it keeps denying me.

Any help is MUCH appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

It won't find the package unless the package is on your ROS_PACKAGE_PATH

So I ran roscore on a terminal then I used a new terminal and ran the source /opt/ros/electric/setup.bash, however, after I ran the same roslaunch, it still gave me the same error.
