Hi All

Trying to calibrate a USB camera, using usb_cam to get the image topics and image_pipeline camera_calibration to calibrat. The calibration GUI shows up but the image is blank and get this error message. Searched for a solution few people have a similar problem but no solutions?

Run:

rosrun camera_calibration cameracalibrator.py --size 8x6 --square 0.108 image:=/usb_cam/image_raw camera:=/usb_cam

Output:

('Waiting for service', '/usb_cam/set_camera_info', '...')
OK

It looks like you are not using the version of image_pipeline designed for ros melodic. Have you checked out the git branch named melodic?

There is a solution.

Go to your catkin workstation/src/camera_calibration/src/camera_calibration.

Go to this file: calibrator.py and find this section:

```

class Calibrator():
    """
    Base class for calibration system
    """
    def __init__(self, boards, flags=0, fisheye_flags = 0, pattern=Patterns.Chessboard, name='',
    checkerboard_flags=cv2.CALIB_CB_FAST_CHECK, max_chessboard_speed = -1.0):
        # Ordering the dimen

```

Then change it to: ```

class Calibrator(object):
    """
    Base class for calibration system
    """
    def __init__(self, boards, flags=0, fisheye_flags = 0, pattern=Patterns.Chessboard, name='',
    checkerboard_flags=cv2.CALIB_CB_FAST_CHECK, max_chessboard_speed = -1.0):
        # Ordering the dimen

```

@farhad-bat Do you know that these changes work correctly? It'is generally a bad idea to rosrun python3 code in melodic, and especially so when there exists a specific version of the package for melodic.

Yes, you are right. I edited the post. It seems to change class Calibrator(): to class Calibrator(object): solved my problem and the other things was extra.
