In the Rviz Tutorial Markers: Sending Basic Shapes (C++) in the code written for the Notetic Distribution.

At line 18

marker.header.frame_id = "/my_frame";

should be changed to

marker.header.frame_id = "my_frame";

You're probably right about that change. Perhaps instead of asking a question, it would make sense to submit a PR to the referenced package? Or at least a bug report?

How would I do that?

If you wanted to submit a PR to actually make the change in the source code that the wiki pulls from, you'd use the link I posted in my original question and follow GitHub standard procedures for a PR. If you wanted to just report the issue then you could use the Issues tab on the previously-linked repo.

Fundamentally, @kscottz is correct this is not a Q&A issue, it's an issue with the wiki and the wiki needs to be updated. However, in this particular case, the wiki pulls the code directly from the repo I linked. So the way to fix the wiki is to get the change made in that repo.

You need to update the wiki; this is not the proper place to report this information.
