Newbie in running a package

asked 2020-03-07 07:46:55 -0500

Hi everyone I followed the wiki pages to create and run a simple node but I am getting this error message :

[rosrun] Couldn't find executable named talker_node below /home/bc/catkin_ws/src/my_package

What I did is :

  mkdir -p ~/catkin_ws/src

    cd catkin_ws/
    catkin_make
    cd src/
    catkin_create_pkg my_package std_msgs rospy roscpp
    cd my_package/src/

Copied a talker.cpp file here (/home/bc/catkin_ws/src/my_package/src/)

Added following lines to /home/bc/catkin_ws/src/my_package/CMakeLists.txt file

add_executable(talker_node src/talker.cpp)
target_link_libraries (talker_node ${catkin_LIBRARIES})

File content :

cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.8.3)
project(my_package)

find_package(catkin REQUIRED COMPONENTS
  roscpp
  rospy
  std_msgs
)
add_executable(talker_node src/talker.cpp)
target_link_libraries (talker_node ${catkin_LIBRARIES})

include_directories(
  ${catkin_INCLUDE_DIRS}
)

finally I compile the code in /home/bc/catkin_ws directory with running

catkin_make

The output:

Source space: /home/bc/catkin_ws/src
Build space: /home/bc/catkin_ws/build

But If I try to run

 rosrun my_package talker_node

I get the error message

[rosrun] Couldn't find executable named talker_node below /home/bc/catkin_ws/src/my_package

What should I do ??? Please help me Thanks.

Did you source ./devel/setup.bash?

as you don't show it: did you run source /home/bc/catkin_ws/devel/setup.bash after running catkin_make and before trying to rosrun your node?

If you haven't, that would explain why it can't find your node.
