I can't source the setup.bash file automatically for ROS noetic

asked 2020-12-15 14:23:13 -0500

Hi. I have just updated my ubuntu and had to remove ROS melodic and install ROS noetic instead. I had changed the ~/.bashrc file and added the command line

source /opt/ros/melodic/setup.bash

so I wouldn't had to source my ROS everytime I open a new terminal. now that I have installed new ROS noetic, I changed the .bashrc file again and replaced the last line with:

source /opt/ros/noetic/setup.bash

but it won't work. I have to source my ROS every time I open a new terminal? any idea how to fix this?

edit retag flag offensive close merge delete


please post the last few lines of your current .bashrc by editing your question, copy&paste of the last few lines and formatting it using the preformatted text button (with 10101) on it. Thank you.
