I am facing this error suddenly in manipulating my dynamixel-based arm. Please anybody help me out. I have not changed anything since my previous version. But suddenly this problem occured. In the dynamixel_controller package:-

 File "/opt/ros/fuerte/stacks/fuerte_workspace/dynamixel_motor/dynamixel_controllers/nodes/controller_manager.py", line 51, in <module>
    roslib.load_manifest('dynamixel_controllers')

    sys.path = _generate_python_path(package_name, _rospack) + sys.path
  File "/opt/ros/fuerte/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/roslib/launcher.py", line 98, in _generate_python_path
    packages = get_depends(pkg, rospack)
  File "/opt/ros/fuerte/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/roslib/launcher.py", line 51, in get_depends
    vals = rospack.get_depends(package, implicit=True)

    s.update(self.get_depends(p, implicit))

I'm facing the same error message just a couple of days when building packages that use dynamic_reconfigure on fuerte (gen_cfg() fails): Strangely "roscd catkin" works while "rospack find catkin" fails. "source /opt/ros/fuerte/setup.bash" did not help...

Something in your launch file depends on catkin and rospkg cannot find it.

Make sure you have run source /opt/ros/fuerte/setup.bash first.
