Hi there,

i created my own robot with three moving groups and three end-effectors in moveit setup assitant. I am able to load the robot in RViz and to shift the end-effectors with the interactive tool. But i need to move all end-effectors at the same time to certain positions. I would like to write a python skript to do some path planning with the robot. I thougt the MoveIt Commander would be pretty good to solve my problem but i cannot open the command line tool. The tutorial says after typing $ rosrun moveit_commander should pop up the command line interface tool. But i only get [rosrun] Couldn`t find executable named below /opt/ros/groovy/share/moveit_commander

I hope someone can help me to solve that problem. Another question i have is if i can visualize the whole simulation in RViz or do i need to put my robot into Gazebo aswell?

Thanks for your help.

Moveit commander is a separate package. Check your system to see if it is installed. Otherwise it looks like a env path issue.

i did download the package. but while downloading it saved the .py file in /opt/ros/groovy/bin. I found it and now i am able to open the command line interface. my next problem is what kind of files can i open with the moveit_commander? I tried the sample code in a .py file but that did not work.
