Hi all,

I have groovy running and the "hello world" working fine. I am writing a python script that needs to directly write to a memory address (e.g. set 0x1234 high). I have to run this script with root permissions, sudo ./scripts/ I get the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last): File "", line 9, in <module> import roslib; roslib.load_manifest('beginner_tutorials') ImportError: No module named roslib

I notice the same with the tutorial file

./scripts/ - runs fine sudo ./scripts/ - gets the error above

Is there a way to sudo run python scripts int the ROS Groovy enviroment? I tried looking through the wiki for help but couldn't find answer.

Thanks in advance, DD

Got it, didn't see that there was a different PYTHONPATH for root, just had to export the roslib path to that as well.
