When I tried to execute this, I got following error:

glv@VaraPrasad:~/catkin_ws$ rosrun rosserial_
rosserial_arduino  rosserial_client   rosserial_msgs     rosserial_python
glv@VaraPrasad:~/catkin_ws$ rosrun rosserial_python           
glv@VaraPrasad:~/catkin_ws$ rosrun rosserial_python /dev/ttyACM1
[rosrun] Couldn't find executable named below /opt/ros/kinetic/share/rosserial_python

In this Tutorial I encountered this rosrun statement, why we need to run this glv@VaraPrasad:~/catkin_ws$ rosrun rosserial_python /dev/ttyACM1 what is the use of it. And how to overcome this error??

Thanks In Advance

I think it is also not right to take the solution from others an do not honor them.

It goes without saying that if/when you create an answer based on an external site, or quote large parts of it, you always include a link to the source.

Including a link != posting only a link.
