I've got Ubuntu 12.04 and ROS Fuerte installed and working correctly. I recently installed Groovy and I couldn't run it.

First of all, I source /opt/ros/groovy/ from a fresh terminal. Then I run roscore and this is the output:

$ roscore

WARNING: unable to configure logging. No log files will be generated
Checking log directory for disk usage. This may take awhile.
Press Ctrl-C to interrupt
Done checking log file disk usage. Usage is <1GB.

Traceback (most recent call last):

    f_roscore = get_roscore_filename()

    return os.path.join(r.get_path('roslaunch'), 'resources', 'roscore.xml')
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/rospkg-1.0.6-py2.7.egg/rospkg/", line 149, in get_path

ResourceNotFound: roslaunch
ROS path [0]=/opt/ros/groovy/share/ros
ROS path [1]=/opt/ros/groovy/share
ROS path [2]=/opt/ros/groovy/stacks

If I look for roslaunch: $ rosversion roslaunch

Cannot locate [roslaunch]

and my installed version is ros-groovy-desktop-full, version 1.9.39-0precise-20121230.

Has anyone the same issue? Do you know how to solve it?

Same question here:

Delete /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/rospkg* it is outdated.
