Hello, I'm a new Ros-user. I installed it with success, but I have a problem. When I give in input in my shell source ~/ros/setup.bash I obtain as answer this:

Traceback (most recent call last): File "<stdin>", line 17, in <module> File "<stdin>", line 17, in <listcomp> TypeError: 'dict_keys' object does not support indexing rospack could not be found, you cannot have rosbash features until you bootstrap ros

And nothing works. If I type the command again all works and I don't receive any error messages.

IIRC, Arch Linux has Python 3 by default, which creates compatibility issues with ROS. I am not an Arch user, but I imagine some bug tickets (and patches) are necessary to be compatible with Arch in this case.

I experienced similar problems. The solution, at least for, is change line 13 to point python2 instead of python3, just by changing that line to this

export _PARSED_CONFIG=`/usr/bin/env python2 << EOPYTHON
