unable to launch roboframenet_desktop.launch [closed]

Hi all, I am trying to run roboframenet, following instructions given at :

$ rosmake roboframenet --rosdep-install runs fine with [ rosmake ] Built 178 packages with 0 failures. But I am not able to launch roboframenet_desktop.launch

I am using electric on Ubuntu 11.10. The issues are:-

  1. $roslaunch roboframenet roboframenet_desktop.launch does not work as launch file is not inside the roboframenet directory. Instead I need to use : roslaunch roboframenet_bringup roboframenet_desktop.launch (minor issue, written for completeness) But the launch is not successful (for stanford_parser_ros). The message I am getting is
    [rosrun] Couldn't find executable named below /home/nirala/ros_workspace/rosjava/rosjava_bootstrap
    and later
    [stanford_parser_ros-3] process has died [pid 9267, exit code 3].
    log files: /home/nirala/.ros/log/0fb38994-a668-11e1-ba34-7071bc63a65c/stanford_parser_ros-3*.log
    rest of the launch seems fine.

    The needed file is not getting downloaded with the method given for installation of rosjava. i.e, hg clone I guess current version is downloading only things related to java in rosjava and not python as I could see using URL : but couldn't find folder of python (at ..rosjava_bootstrap/.gradle/src/main/) if I browse from root.

    If this is the issue then how to get the needed rosjava installation.
  2. My rosjava build is not complete it fails at ./gradle test. But I guess even if rosjava installation is complete then also this issue will remain (please comment). I have posted the rosjava problem at (in comment) :

roswtf is giving output as:-

How can I directly send a message by-passing the need of stanford_parser_ros. Can I get a sample message doing this (also the topic to which it is published.)

Do you still see the issue (or no longer working on this)? I'm able to run launch file on fuerte just now. I guess the improvements in depended libraries over time (incl. rosjava itself) might have been a fix.

Hey, As of now I am not working on this (but would see it soon). I am still working on electric as my sim env was not loading on fuerte : Same with groovy. Thnx anyway
