You can add plugin.xml in your directory /opt/ros/melodic/share/rqt_virtual_joy.

  1. Go to rqt_virtual_joy directory.

    roscd rqt_vritual_joy
  2. Make file plugin.xml

    sudo touch plugin.xml
  3. Edit the plugin.xml file with gedit (or other)

    sudo gedit plugin.xml
  4. Copy and paste the contents of the plugin.xml file from the rqt_virtual_joystick github to your plugin.xml.
