Hi, I have installed Ros_groovy. And I am creating my workspace with the tutorial: "Installing and Configuring Your ROS Environment"

and everything goes okay, until I write:

john@john-G41D3C:~$ rosws set ~/groovy_workspace/sandbox

ERROR in config: Command requires a target workspace.

I try even with other name of my workspace, but i get the same error:

john@john-G41D3C:~$ rosws set ~/fuerte_workspace/sandbox

ERROR in config: Command requires a target workspace.

What am i doing wrong?

Did you create a new overlay first? $rosws init ~/groovy_workspace /opt/ros/groovy

Do this "rosws init ~/groovy_workspace /opt/ros/groovy" then source setup.bash created in workspace folder using this "source ~/fuerte_workspace/setup.bash" . Then in new terminal try roscd it should direct you to the workspace folder u have created.
