I updated the onboard mini-ITX PC in Husky A200 with Ubuntu 12.04 and ROS Fuerte today. while the installations were successful and i was able to complete all the procedures including the download of clearpath packages for Ubuntu 12.04 the system repeatedly keeps saying

"unable to communicate with the master"

Initially I downloaded the various clearpath packages for husky including,





I performed the steps provided in husky page which is briefly mentioned below.

roscd clearpath_common
sudo ./setup_udev.bash
roscd clearpath_bringup/upstart
sudo ./install.bash eth0 administrator husky_bringup

And finally,

sudo service clearpath start

However, for any further ROS command it mostly says,

unable to communicate with the master!

Interestingly I found that the install.bash file for fuerte also contains the name electric in several places. Should I modify this to fuerte instead?

Looking for some suggestions on restoring the communications in Husky,

I found that the mistake I found was absolutely correct. Replacing the name of electric in the install.bash file with fuerte solves the problem.
