hey everyone,

im forever trying to subscribe to a topic (gazebo/link_states) alter the info and publish it again so i can use it for other nodes.

however. i cant get it to work with a seperate subscriber and publisher, as the subscriber node doesnt, obviously, publish any data. and neither do i succeed with a publisher node alone. because; how do i extract info from the link_states topic in a publisher node without having to use a rospy.subscriber?

ive been trying for over 4 hours and cant seem to figure it out, is the whole publisher/subscriber approach wrong?

any answers are welcome!

greetings girpon

You need to put publisher and subscriber in the same node.

@ahendrix: why did you post that as a comment?

I posted as a comment because it's not a complete answer; it doesn't include or link to documentation about how to use publishers and subscribers in the same node.

Ok. True. But it is most likely the answer :)

It would be valuable for future readers if you could edit your answer and explain what you did and why, and how that solved your problem.
