Hello, I am doing the ROS2 tutorial and I am missing commands like :

ros2 interface

ros2 service find

ros2 service type

They once were missing CLI Tools according to this website:

I assumed that they are already integrated in dashing, but apparently not..

I am on Ubuntu 18.04 and I am using dashing

Looks like you're having the same issue as this question:

Looking at ros2service verbs on the Dashing branch, only call and list are implemented. Similarly ros2 interface is not backported to Dashing.
As of the time of writing, in order to use those in Dashing, you will have to pull the ros2cli master branch and build the package locally.

But I would suggest, seeing the age of this question, new users should install ROS 2 Foxy instead of sticking with Dashing.

Unless they really need to use Dashing.
