Hi all!

I tried rosrun map_server map_server testmap.yaml and get the message

[rosrun] Couldn't find executable named map_server below /opt/ros/electric/stacks/navigation/map_server
[rosrun] Found the following, but they're either not files, 
[rosrun] or not executable:
[rosrun]   /opt/ros/electric/stacks/navigation/map_server
[rosrun]   /opt/ros/electric/stacks/navigation/map_server/include/map_server

Why it does not work?

Do I have anything to do after the installation, before i can start it?

Thanks for help!

The rosmake map_server does not work right: (The bin folder is empty.)

This is weird. There should be an executable called map_server in that package. What does the following command give you?

$ ls -l /opt/ros/electric/stacks/navigation/map_server/bin/map_server 
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1498250 2012-05-09 06:23 /opt/ros/electric/stacks/navigation/map_server/bin/map_server

Update: It looks like you are running rosmake as root (using sudo?) in the /opt/... directory. You should never do that. Something like this is probably also the cause of your problems. Instead, reinstall the deb package, as Felix suggested. The command is:

sudo apt-get install --reinstall ros-electric-navigation
edit flag offensive delete link more


ls: cannot access /opt/ros/electric/stacks/navigation/map_server/bin/map_server: No such file or directory. The bin folder exists, but he is empty. I think that is because I get error messages when I do rosmake map_server. I add this to my question, so you can look at it. Maybe you can help me.

Reinstall the respective ros package

I tried, but the command rosdep install map_server give me the command: Failed to find rosdep sdl-image for package map_server on OS:ubuntu version:lucid rosdep install ERROR: failed to install sdl-image

I've updated my answer, see above.

sudo apt-get install --reinstall ros-electric-navigation give the command that some packages could not installed, because ros-electric-navigation depend on libsdl-image1.2-dev, but should not installed because E: broken package

JaRu gravatar image JaRu  ( 2013-04-12 23:39:40 -0600 )edit

When I like to install libsdl-image1.2-dev I have the same problem, could not install, because depends on libsdl1.2-dev. But libsdl1.2-dev is already installed... I do not know what I can do now.

JaRu gravatar image JaRu  ( 2013-04-13 00:29:12 -0600 )edit

What it probably says that it depends on libsdl1.2-dev in a specific version that's newer than your installed version. Try sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get dist-upgrade; sudo apt-get install libsdl-image1.2-dev. Hope that helps.

I tried, but unfortunately I got the same command, it does not work.
