It seems like something in your configuration is pointing to a cturtle installation of ROS. Did you have a previous installation of cturtle on your machine? Or do you have a parallel cturtle-installation somewhere?

Btw. why do you want to use diamondback? Is ROS Electric no option for you?

Well im beginner on this. I do not have other cturtle-instalation. I just wonted to understand the middleware framework, how to subscribe/publish to topics, write simple apps and drivers, use rosbag for replaying data, rviz, etc. So why ROS Electric is better otion? I got already installed ROS diamondback and i just played the beginner_tutorials on my oracle VM box. My project is on Willow Garage ROS based.

Any sugestions?

P.S rosrun turtlesim turtlesim_node is working perfect . Also rosrun turtlesim turtlesim_node. But the $ rxgraph failed. Connections errors. Like this

Unable to contact master [Errno 111] Connection refused

ROS Diamondback is really old. Fuerte has recently been released and I don't think Diamondback is still supported. As Michi already pointed out, your installation seems to be messed up. Follow the instructions at and the tutorials.

But when diamondback is old does not means that is still not working. So any chance to upgrade to Fuerte or Electric?
