Hi

I am following the tutorial for Parallax Eddie Robot from Ros all the way up to step 6 and got stuck there. When I first trying to "rosmake" it, it told me this:

[ rosmake ] WARNING: The following args could not be parsed as stacks or packages: ['eddiebotdsdadsadsa'] [ rosmake ] ERROR: No arguments could be parsed into valid package or stack names.

After I searched around and changed the ROS_PACKAGE_PATH, I got different errors each time.

christopher@christopher-Lenovo-G770:~$ export ROS_PACKAGE_PATH=/home/christopher/fuerte_workspace/sandbox:/opt/ros/fuerte/share:/opt/ros/fuerte/stacks:/home/christopher/eddiebot-master christopher@christopher-Lenovo-G770:~$ rosmake eddiebot [ rosmake ] rosmake starting...

I just had the same problem and the above answers did not work for me. However, I followed the directions in the following link and I'm now a little further along. It looks like you basically have to install each package needed.

This error is due to the fact that ROS cannot find the package. By default ROS will search inside "stack" or "share" depending on the version of ROS, for the package. Once you completed Step 5, the "eddiebot" folder was probably placed in: "/home/christopher/eddiebot"

You need to move it into: "opt/ros/fuerte/share/"

This can be done by the following:

sudo mv -i eddiebot opt/ros/fuerte/share

You should not move anything into /opt/ros manually! That is a system managed directory shared across all users and is liable to change or disappear at any time due to apt changes.
