Hi All,

I'm trying to build rxtools and turtlesim package (following ROS tutorials '8. Using rxconsole and roslaunch'), but when I try the command

mehrdad@ubuntu:~$ rosdep install rxtools turtlesim

I get:

executing command [sudo apt-get install swig-wx]
[sudo] password for mehrdad:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package swig-wx
ERROR: the following rosdeps failed to install
apt: command [sudo apt-get install swig-wx] failed

Then, when I try the above command (sudo apt-get install swig-wx), I get this error:

mehrdad@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install swig-wx
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package swig-wx

How do I resolve this?

Thanks

I found a rosdistro commit related to swig-wx: Added swig-wx rules to base.yaml

But I can't find the package named 'swig-wx' in packages.ubuntu.com.

So I removed the following lines from ~/.ros/rosdep/sources.cache/0a12...(please check that this is a cache of https://github.com/ros/rosdistro/raw/master/rosdep/base.yaml)

swig-wx:
  debian: swig-wx
  ubuntu: {lucid: swig-wx, oneiric: swig-wx, precise: swig-wx, quantal: swig-wx}

Then rosdep seems to work well.

This problem is relevant to ubuntu instead of ROS.

Try

sudo apt-get update

first. If this doesn't work, you can reference
