I'm running Ubuntu 20.04 on a 64bit machine and ROS noetic. I'm new to Linux, Ubuntu, and ROS so when I see a problem I'm not sure which of those level it is in.

I'm going through the ROS tutorials and I'm on "Getting started with roswtf". When I enter "roswtf" I get a one line response: "bash: /opt/ros/noetic/bin/roswtf: No such file or directory"

I can't find this when googling. Any leads?

How did you install ROS?

Please link to any tutorials or guides.

Also tell us whether you've installed any additional packages after you installed "base ROS".

This is probably a problem due to bad installation.

gvdhoorn, I went through the ROS tutorials without deviation. The install was done via ""

If it is due to a bad installation, as parzival suggests, how do I repair it?

Thanks for your feedback.
