I'm following the steps from the Robotis e-Manual website


  • I'm running roscore on remote pc.
  • I'm running roslaunch turtlebot3_bringup turtlebot3_robot.launch on turtlebot pc.

But every time I run the command below on the remote pc:

 rosrun rviz rviz -d `rospack find turtlebot3_description`/rviz/model.rviz

I get is error:

[rospack] Error: package 'turtlebot3_description' not found

After I get this message,a window with the title model.rivz* -VZiz and it's suppose to display the robot and it doesn't. Also I get a global status error.image description

How do I fix this??

I've found a solution for this. After you have installed ROS, you need to create a ROS workspace and setup a bash. Immediately you need to make sure your workspace is properly overlayed by the setup script, make sure ROS_PACKAGE_PATH environment variable includes the directory you're in.
Follow this website, step 3 for instruction--
