So I'm trying to install Fuerte using Homebrew as per these instructions. I got as far as rosinstall, but although pip seems to have successfully installed rosinstall, it's not on my PATH. My PATH is:

  • /usr/local/bin
  • /usr/local/lib/wxPython/bin
  • /usr/bin
  • /bin
  • /usr/sbin
  • /sbin
  • /opt/X11/bin
  • /usr/texbin

I found some scripts like in /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/rosinstall; is one of those supposed to be symlinked into /usr/local/bin perhaps?

Sorry ... can you identify exactly what step you got to before the instructions failed?? Your path seems fine and I assume you got to step 1.2.2 where you successfully did: easy_install pip and setuptools? How much farther did you get?

Sorry again ... I focused a little too much on pip. I have rosinstall (python script) located in /usr/local/bin and it is not a symlink but an actual script. What are your .bashrc and .profiles? what is the output of env?

I also have in my env: PYTHONPATH=/usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages ... do you have something similar?

Hi Kevin. I have done everything up through step 1.2.4, and I can't do step 1.3 because I don't seem to have a rosinstall script anywhere. My PYTHONPATH does include that directory. Here is env:

SOLVED. I found the scripts rosinstall, rosws, etc. They were installed to /usr/local/share/python.

Instead of changing the title to "[SOLVED]" can you accept this answer? ROS Answers will then mark it as "answered" in the system.

I cannot accept the answer as I don't have 25 points. Looks like Kevin has closed the question for me.
