Missing rosidl type support for custom message in Python [Eloquent]

asked 2019-11-28 12:54:27 -0600

What I am trying to achieve: within my workspace, create a ament_cmake package with custom messages called navigation_msgs and publish them in an ament_python package.

What works: ros2 interface show navigation_msgs/EulerAttitude correctly displays my message. I am also able to import the message in Python from navigation_msgs.msg import EulerAttitude. Furthermore, within the same package I can publish built-in messages like geometry_msgs (Vector3)

What does not work: when trying to ros2 run pub_node not_working I get a typesupport error (the trace is below). It is raised when I call create_publisher in the NotWorkingNode constructor.

Setup: Ubuntu 18.04 with ROS3 Eloquent from APT. ros2 doctor works. (in fact the problem if the same with Dashing, also from APT.)

How to reproduce: attached code is a minimal workspace with ros2 run pub_node working and ros2 run pub_node working. working should work and notworking should give the error.

Quick comment, I can't upload the files because I don't have enough reputation... would be happy to put them in a Google Drive or something if necessary. Looking forward to hearing from you!
