Hye, i have some problem regarding about writing a node. I have a source program written in python and it seems executable in svn. I already try with eclipse with Pydev plug in but it seems not work. I dont know if my step with CMakelist.txt is wrong or Python code just cant execute with eclipse. To make it clear, i try ( ) this project and i got this error during run my nodes.

/ros_workspace/playground/bin$ rosrun playground [rosrun] Couldn't find executable named below /home/farid/ros_workspace/playground [rosrun] Found the following, but they're either not files, [rosrun] or not executable: [rosrun] /home/farid/ros_workspace/playground/nodes/

It seems not executable. Thanks for the help.

The svn:executable property is automatically managed only during adds and imports, but does not change when you use chmod on a file after that. So you need to tell svn explicitly to change the executable property of a tracked file. The command looks something like "svn propset svn:executable '*' filename"

Huh. Add that the list of things I didn't know. (And to the list of "Why use SVN anymore?")

That means it isn't executable; you'll need to set the executable bit:

chmod +x
