I have installed moveit on groovy (Ubuntu 12.04) and I want to follow their tutorials. The first step is to launch the moveit_setup_assistant and I failed in the this very first step. When I run this command (suggested by moveit Wiki)

roslaunch moveit_setup_assistant setup_assistant.launch

I receive this error:

[moveit_setup_assistant] is not a package or launch file name

Why this happens and how should I tackle this problem? It might be worth mentioning that while typing the command, tab complition works properly and completes both parts.

Did you source devel/setup.bash in the terminal where you issued your command?

Sounds like a rospack error, or a problem sourcing your groovy workspace. Can you roscd into moveit_setup_assistant?

What is the full output of your error line? Is there a part before "[moveit_setup_assistant] is not a package or launch file name"?
