i followed the instruction from: after making the full installation of ros fuerte and i got this error:

[ rosmake ] Packages requested are:
[ rosmake ] Logging to directory
[ rosmake ] Expanded args

[ rosmake ] **WARNING: The following
args could not be parsed as stacks or**
packages: ['pr2_gazebo'] [ rosmake ]
**ERROR: **No arguments could be parsed into valid package or stack names.****

i tried to install the pr2_gazebo:

lab116@ubuntu:~$ rosdep  install pr2_gazebo

ERROR: Rosdep cannot find all required

Don't do a manual installation. It seems like you already installed ros from debian packages, so just install the debian package for the pr2 simulation:

sudo apt-get install ros-fuerte-pr2-simulator

There's no rosmake nor rosdep installed required. Just start the simulation with:

roslaunch pr2_gazebo pr2_empty_world.launch
