Hello there!

I have been trying to run mavros_node using the command rosrun mavros mavros_node but it returns me [rosrun] Couldn't find executable named mavros_node below /home/username/catkin_ws/src/mavros/mavros.

When I check mavros/mavros/scripts there isn't a file named mavros_node inside. Did I install mavros wrongly?

I followed the instructions for source installation

I am running Ubuntu 16.04.5 LTS and kinetic as my ros distro.

Ultimately aiming to use the bluerov_ros_playground package to help automate my bluerov2.

Could use some help! :)

Can you tell us why you installed mavros from source? The readme you link has a section titled "Binary installation (deb)".

Inside mavros/mavros/src must be the mavros_node.cpp file that will be used in rosrun mavros mavros_node.

Maybe it is just a problem of source of the bash, try to source it again source ~/catkin_ws/devel/setup.bash.
