rostest console output

I just started using rostest with gtest, and have encountered the problem that only ROS_ERROR() messages are displaying. According to the documentation, you can change the rostest output with the --text command, but that doesn't help me since I am running the tests via catkin_make run_tests. I found this thread, but adding ros::start() did not help either.

Any help is appreciated!

What do you mean? What was the result?

If you want to see different messages than the ROS_ERROR()ones, you have to set the right verbosity level.

edit the file $ROS_ROOT/config/rosconsole.config (or any other and point ROSCONSOLE_CONFIG_FILE at it) with the following content:

# Set the default ros output to warning and higher
# Override my package to output everything

can you please check that and accept the answer if it worked, thanks
