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 https://github.com/mavlink/mavros/blo...

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)".
