Hi all,

I would like to play with pr2_manager_controller, but I found strange behaviour. I tried to start some controllers but didn't succeeded, so I tried most basic thing and found that - if I start just roscore and then use "rosrun pr2_controller_manager pr2_controller_manager list-types" it hangs and never produce any output. What might be wrong?

Ubuntu 11.10, ROS Electric (up-to-date).

The controller manager is probably not running.

pr2_controller_manager is just a library that provides a few services and the infra structure for running controller plugins in a loop. Gazebo or the real hardware (package pr2_etherCAT) link against that library and provide the interface between the controllers and the hardware.

If you just want to play around with pr2_controller_manager, run the PR2 in simulation with:

roslaunch pr2_gazebo pr2_empty_world.launch
