Hello everyone,

I'm studying the Smach stack on ROS Groovy (compiled from sources) and I would like to use the smach viewer but it doesn't work anymore and seems to have been replaced by rqt_smach. The problem is that the rqt_smach page doesn't explain how to use it. I tried to rosrun rqt_smach rqt_smach or rqt_smach but without any success.

Somebody knows how to make it work ?

AFAIK, rqt_smach isn't completed yet according to this conversation, and I'm not sure what happened to smach_viewer.

I still have an interest to take over the development of rqt_smach but can't guarantee.

Ok thx for that. It's a bit disappointing because I can't "see" the state machine I try to make with smach so it's difficult to go for a big one without this tool... Packages maintenance trough ROS versions seems to be a big problem ... especially for users.
