rqt_console and rqt_logger_level

asked 2012-12-11 17:57:04 -0500


I'm am very new to ROS, I am using Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS and ROS Fuerte. I have been going through the tutorials and I came across a problem, when I type the command:

rosrun rqt_console rqt_console

I get:

[rosrun] Couldn't find executable named rqt_console below /opt/ros/fuerte/stacks/rqt/rqt_console [rosrun] Found the following, but they're either not files, [rosrun] or not executable: [rosrun] /opt/ros/fuerte/stacks/rqt/rqt_console [rosrun] /opt/ros/fuerte/stacks/rqt/rqt_console/src/rqt_console

and similarly with rqt_logger_level, although the rqt_gui/rqt_graph works fine. Is there a solution to this problem?

Thanks and best regards,

Khalid Yousif

The tutorial works for ROS groovy, but not fuerte. I will create a bug report.

EDIT3: It seems the rqt_gui command has been replaced by a global rqt command in groovy, so from now on these should work in Groovy:

$ rqt 
$ rqt -s rqt_console
$ rqt -s rqt_logger_level

in Fuerte, (and for some time during Groovy beta), you could do this instead:

$ rosrun rqt_gui rqt_gui

and select Plugins > Console in the menu. That has the same effect.

EDIT: Or, to get exactly the same, run

$ rosrun rqt_gui rqt_gui -s rqt_console
$ rosrun rqt_gui rqt_gui -s rqt_logger_level

Hello Yousif,

I got acutally the same problem! But I also don't know how to solve it like you.

It would be nice if we get some help from others!

cheers Olgen
