Hey, I'm kinda new to ROS and I've been trying to complete this tutorial ( to connect ROS to my Dynamixel.

But when I execute this command "roslaunch my_dynamixel_tutorial controller_manager.launch" I get the error

File "/home/parallels/catkin_ws/src/dynamixel_motor/dynamixel_controllers/nodes/", line

210 except ImportError, ie: ^

SyntaxError: invalid syntax

I am using ROS noetic on an Ubuntu arm virtual machine and I have the following packages in my catkin_ws/src





dynamixel_motor (

and the project I created in the previously mentioned tutorial.

I tried to execute roslaunch in a virtual python enviroment with an older version, cause I thought that it might be a problem with a new python version, cause the dynamixel_motor repository doesn't get maintained anymore, but that didn't help.

I would greatly appreciate a hint or a solution to fix this problem
