I tried to move de hand with rostopic and this work very well

 rostopic pub /sh_ffj3_mixed_position_velocity_controller/command std_msgs/Float64 -- 10

And I tried to make this with code.

import roslib; roslib.load_manifest('rospy_tutorials')

import rospy
from std_msgs.msg import *

def talker():
    pub = rospy.Publisher('sh_ffj3_mixed_position_velocity_controller/command', Float64)
    value = 10

if __name__ == '__main__':
    except rospy.ROSInterruptException: pass

But this didn't work. The model in the gazebo gui does not move.

This the result of this execution:

/opt/ros/fuerte/share/rospy_tutorials$ rosrun beginner_tutorials[INFO] [WallTime: 1365084692.814065] [0.000000] 10

Anyone knows what is wrong?

It is likely that you need to keep the node up long enough to allow the connection to be established, and then the data sent. rostopic pub does this by setting the topic to be latched, so the last sent message will be sent to a new subscriber upon estabilishing a connection, and then waiting 3 seconds before quitting to allow the connection to be established.

You can also add: rospy.spin() to keep the node up and running until you kill it, and then send your targets from a loop.
