Hi. I'm trying to make a ROS service, but I'm getting "ImportError: No module named testsrv.srv".

My code is:

# -*- coding : utf-8 -*-

from testsrv.srv import *

I've uncommented into the CMakeLists.txt:

#uncomment if you have defined messages
#uncomment if you have defined services

And part of my directory tree is this:

What is the problem? Why can't I import the srv file?

Since it seems like you are using rosbuild and not catkin to build your packages, if you check out the rosbuild version of rospy Publisher and Subscriber tutorial, you'll notice that the Python scripts start with two lines that look like

import roslib; roslib.load_manifest('beginner_tutorials')
import rospy

It looks to me like your test script is just missing these lines. If your manifest.xml is correct, you should just need to convert 'beginner_tutorials' to your package name.
