Hi guys,

I'm new to ros and installed fuerte(OS Ubuntu 12.04),

the documentation says rospack/rosstack are stand-alone-tools in this version, but there is no description where to get the tool.

My guess was, that something like "sudo easy_install -U rospack" would do the trick, which it does not.

Any suggestions what I might need to download or what the correct bash-command is?

thx Tinne, dunno why, but it seems like I used an outdated installationguide, where ROS_PACKET_PATH was set within the .bashrc :-)

I think you should just set up your ROS environment correctly as explained in section 1.5. In that case you should be able to use rospack out of the box.

For your information: after setting up my ros fuerte environment, roscd rospack results in: /opt/ros/fuerte/share/rospack
