When i tried to install joint_state_publisher package in kinetic it also installed joint_state_publisher_gui along with that. But No commands available for installing packages are helping to install the gui package in melodic.

No commands available for installing packages are helping to install the gui package in melodic.

Can you clarify this please ? If you said that installing joint_state_publisher also installed joint_state_publisher_gui then you don't need to install it anymore.

Do you mean that sudo apt install ros-melodic-joint-state-publisher-gui isn't working ?

Hi go to 'Software and Updates' in the 'Other Software' tab check the bionic main

if you don't have it add this then in the terminal

sudo apt update

now you can install the package with

sudo apt install ros-melodic-joint-state-publisher-gui
