Hi guys,

I'm following the ROS Tutorials and currently doing the item Examining the Simple Service and Client using the Python language ((<link>http:// www.ros.org/wiki/ROS/Tutorials/ExaminingServiceClient</link>)).

However when I try to run the client using the python command, I get this error:

viki@ROS:~/catkin_ws$ rosrun beginner_tutorials add_two_ints_server.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/viki/catkin_ws/src/beginner_tutorials/scripts/add_two_ints_server.py", line 3, in <module>
    from beginner_tutorials.srv import *
ImportError: No module named beginner_tutorials.srv

I just can't figure it out what's happening. I'm almost sure I've done all the steps in the previous tutorial ( link text ), 'cause everything seemed to work just as hoped:

viki@ROS:~/catkin_ws$ cd ~/catkin_ws
viki@ROS:~/catkin_ws$ catkin_make
Base path: /home/viki/catkin_ws
Source space: /home/viki/catkin_ws/src
Build space: /home/viki/catkin_ws/build
Devel space: /home/viki/catkin_ws/devel
Install space: /home/viki/catkin_ws/install
####
#### Running command: "make cmake_check_build_system" in "/home/viki/catkin_ws/build"
####
####
#### Running command: "make -j1" in "/home/viki/catkin_ws/build"
####
viki@ROS:~/catkin_ws$

Can anybody help me? Thanks in advance,

Batta

I see nothing indicating that beginner_tutorials was built. Is it in your workspace?

The problem was stemming from misspelling in the package name. It's now resolved.

What was the misspelling? I have seen this mentioned in another question about the same problem so perhaps the misspelling stems from the code give in the tutorial.

I'm not sure if in tutorials is missed the 'source' command. Try to source the setup.bash file in devel folder in your workspace:

source $YOUR_WORKSPACE/devel/setup.bash

Create another question for your own problem and include the output of `export | grep ROS´ and your CMakeLists.txt file

Hi everyone. I have the same issue. I am using the Hydro distribution and I have followed the steps 1 to 16 for the beginner tutorials. Now, when I execute the command line rosrun beginner_tutorials add_two_ints_server.py I get the following error messages:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/home/$MY_NAME/catkin_ws/src/beginner_tutorial/scripts/add_two_ints_server.py", line 3, in <module>
from beginner_tutorials.srv import *
ImportError: No module named beginner_tutorials.srv

Also, when I execute the command line rosrun beginner_tutorials add_two_ints_client.py I get the following error messages:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/$MY_NAME/catkin_ws/src/beginner_tutorial/scripts/add_two_ints_client.py", line 2, in <module>

  File "/opt/ros/hydro/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/roslib/launcher.py", line 62, in load_manifest
    sys.path = _generate_python_path(package_name, _rospack) + sys.path
  File "/opt/ros/hydro/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/roslib/launcher.py", line 93, in _generate_python_path

ROS path [1]=/home/$MY_NAME/catkin_ws/src
ROS path [2]=/opt/ros/hydro/share

Could you please help me with this?

Thank you
