[rospack] Error: stack/package rqt_gui not found

I am working on part 6 "Understanding ROS Topics" of the tutorial and I am having a problem with section 1.2.1. I am running Ubuntu 12.04 with Fuerte and when I try to run

rosrun rqt_gui rqt_gui

It gives me an error saying rqt_gui was not found. I am not sure why I am missing this package or how to fix it. I tried reinstalling python-catkin-pkg, but that did not fix the issue.

Does anyone have any ideas how to fix this so I can continue with the tutorial?

Thank you

It seems like I am in fact missing rqt_gui, but when I attempt to update apt-get and then install ros_fuerte_rqt I get the error unable to locate package ros_fuerte_rqt

Nevermind I figured it out. Dashes instead of underscores.

You need to have rqt_gui installed. You can mke sure it is installed by running:

$ sudo apt-get install ros_fuerte_rqt

In ROS Groovy, replace

$ rosrun rqt_gui rqt_gui


$ rqt
