I use ROS2 Dashing on ubuntu 18.04 64bits.

I run:

sam@sam-ub1804:~/ros2_overlay_ws$ ros2 launch sam_create_urdf_box_shown_with_rviz2 robot_state_publisher.launch.py
[INFO] [launch]: All log files can be found below /home/sam/.ros/log/2019-12-10-19-12-32-653587-sam-ub1804-5493
[INFO] [launch]: Default logging verbosity is set to INFO
urdf_file_name : sam_box_robot.urdf
[INFO] [robot_state_publisher-1]: process started with pid [5513]

[robot_state_publisher-1] Parsing robot urdf xml string.
[robot_state_publisher-1] got segment base_link

and

sam@sam-ub1804:~/ros2_dashing_overlay_ws$ ros2 launch sam_create_urdf_box_shown_with_rviz2 rviz2.launch.py
[INFO] [launch]: All log files can be found below /home/sam/.ros/log/2019-12-10-19-12-39-826543-sam-ub1804-5520

successfully.

However, Rviz2 could not show my urdf file with RobotModel. It says: No tf data. Actual error: Frame [base_link] does not exist

I tried to add joint_state_publisher.launch.py as previously I do in robot_state_publisher.launch.py, just change the name from robot to joint. But it says : package 'joint_state_publisher' not found

What could I do?

How to install joint_state_publisher and write its launch.py? Or how to solve this problem?

My joint_state_publisher.launch.py

import os
from ament_index_python.packages import get_package_share_directory
from launch import LaunchDescription
from launch.actions import DeclareLaunchArgument
from launch.substitutions import LaunchConfiguration
from launch_ros.actions import Node


def generate_launch_description():
    use_sim_time = LaunchConfiguration('use_sim_time', default='false')
    urdf_file_name = 'sam_box_robot.urdf'

    print('urdf_file_name : {}'.format(urdf_file_name))

    urdf = os.path.join(
        get_package_share_directory('sam_create_urdf_box_shown_with_rviz2'),
        'urdf',
        urdf_file_name)

    return LaunchDescription([
        DeclareLaunchArgument(
            'use_sim_time',
            default_value='false',
            description='Use simulation (Gazebo) clock if true'),

        Node(
            package='joint_state_publisher',
            node_executable='joint_state_publisher',
            node_name='joint_state_publisher',
            output='screen',
            parameters=[{'use_sim_time': use_sim_time}],
            arguments=[urdf]),
    ])

Thank you~

Finally, I solve it my myself. Than answer is I use the following code to replace joint_state_publisher:

    Node(package='dummy_sensors', node_executable='dummy_joint_states', output='screen'),
