Continuing the discussion from Topics RViz plugin: You can check the package here

Hello. I’m a beginner on ROS. So, I have this question.

I downloaded this plugin at my workspace. After build it using catkin_make, I tried to run this plugin directly. But, I can’t it. The prompt can not found binary file for this plugin.

I checked CMakeLists.txt and package.xml. But, I don’t know how to run this exactly. It sounds like a basic question about ros, could you tell me how to fix this?

// ENV: Ubuntu 16.04, ROS Kinetic

This is a plugin for rviz, not a standalone program, so you load it from within rviz.

After you've built the package and sourced the workspace where you built it, start rviz. There should be a Panel menu, and from there you should be able to find a menu option that will let you add the Topics panel to the rviz display.
