I am using rosbridge. My current ros_distro is melodic. I cannot subscribe to custom messages with an error : Unable to load the manifest for package <pkg_name>. I sourced the bash file in another terminal : . ./devel/setup.bash and used rospack find <pkg_name> but this also gives an error : package not found.

This is strange as I can publish and subscribe to the same topic in ROS.

The question needs more clarifications, but if rospack find doesn't find it, then the problem is not rosbridge. Either the compilation is failing or you're not sourcing it correctly. Also, why do you say you can pub/sub from ROS? How did you check that?
