i am new to ROS currently working on ROS Kinetic,i have an issue when i run this linefollowing.cpp file using the command “rosrun roscv linefollowing.cpp” (where roscv is the package name & “linefollowing.cpp” is the .cpp file),

the error;

I don't think you would need .cpp in rosrun. As for the executable, what locations did you look for it?

Usually it should be build in "devel/lib/" in package directory, so i looked up there!!! But i cant find it there!! So i searched for it in the whole workspace but i cant still find it!!! @MakinaharaShouko

Hi. Hope I am not too late!!

The executable not available might be due to CMakeLists.txt not being configured correctly. Can you post a Screenshot of the "catkin_make" command output and "CMakeLists.txt" file if possible?

If you have already solved the query. Feel free to reply with the solution too!!
