I have seen rqt_visualization and found that rqt_graph is already ported for the Crystal. I have run rqt_graph by rosrun rqt_graph rqt_graph command in ROS1 (melodic) but don't know about Crystal.

I have tried ros2 run rqt_graph rqt_graph after building on crystal and source setup.bash but not able to run.

Please provide me guidance for the same.

Assuming you have built the latest state from the crystal-devel branch in the rqt_graph repo have you tried to call just rqt_graph?

Cool, I missed that last update. Do you plan to release a stable version in a patch for crystal or will it be only in D-turtle?

@Dirk Thomas Yes, I have tried rqt_graph command and it is opening one window like rqt and rqt_plot but specifically for rqt_graph. So, We can access the rqt graph with rqt_graph command with arguments.

rqt_graph has been released for Crystal and will be in the main repo with the next sync. It can be invoked standalone by just calling rqt_graph on the command line.

rqt_graph has not been included in the first Crystal release.

It has been ported very recently and you can try it by building it from sources

Once you have built the package, it's sufficient to run rqt_graph to launch it, or you can run the standard rqt gui with ros2 run rqt_gui rqt_gui and find it under Plugins/Introspection/Nodes graph.
