While trying to run my python script, I get ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'lightring_msgs'. I know the message types are being generated; the package files are in the install directory. Why can't python find the module?

My project layout

/lightring_driver
    /lightring_driver
        <driver files>
        package.xml
        setup.cfg
        setup.py
    /lightring_msgs
        /msg
        CMakeLists.txt
        package.xml
        setup.cfg

lightring_msgs/CMakeLists.txt

cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 3.5)

project(lightring_msgs)

# Default to C++14
if(NOT CMAKE_CXX_STANDARD)
  set(CMAKE_CXX_STANDARD 14)
endif()

if(CMAKE_COMPILER_IS_GNUCXX OR CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER_ID MATCHES "Clang")
  add_compile_options(-Wall -Wextra -Wpedantic)
endif()

find_package(ament_cmake REQUIRED)
find_package(builtin_interfaces REQUIRED)
find_package(rosidl_default_generators REQUIRED)

rosidl_generate_interfaces(lightring_msgs
  "msg/LightringCommand.msg"
  DEPENDENCIES builtin_interfaces
)

How are you building these packages? did you source the setup.bash/setup.bat file after building? Is the location that you installed to on your PYTHONPATH as a result?

Looks like not sourcing setup.sh (in my case) was the issue. Thank you!

I forgot to source install/setup.sh after building. Thanks @William!
