I have run setup.bat

Such I have a package in root path named "test_pkg", and my python scripts in path test_pkg\scripts\

If I run rosrun test_pkg in cmd, I will got error "Couldn't find executable named"

Buf if I run rosrun test_pkg scripts\, it will work well.

It's a little inconvenient, could anyone tell me how to fix it? Thanks.

Have you installed your Python script in your CMakeLists.txt file (search for catkin_install_python())?

@Sean Yen Can you give me some examples? I tried to add catkin_install_python(PROGRAMS test_pkg scripts/ DESTINATION ${CATKIN_PACKAGE_BIN_DESTINATION}) in my CMakeLists.txt in path "test_pkg\". But I got error. I think I write it with wrong format. So. could you give some examples? Thanks a lot!.

Can you share the error message you see? Most likely I would guess you should change the line to catkin_install_python(PROGRAMS scripts/ DESTINATION ${CATKIN_PACKAGE_BIN_DESTINATION}) and then run catkin_make again.

@Sean Yen catkin_python_setup() called with unused arguments: PROGRAMS;scripts/;DESTINATION

My computer couldn't connent network, so I just type the main error message of the log, if you want to the whole log, I can take pictures for you. I'm sorry about that.

@张庆昊 I am also new to ROS but outgoing from the error message i would suggest that you add the python scripts to catkin_install_python(...) and not to catkin_python_setup() in CMakeList.txt so it looks like this:

# catkin_python_setup()


Afterwards you should try to build it again with catkin_make.

@mab0189 Thanks, but I have left my last company, and start a new career. For all that, still thanks for you.
