There is a dot missing in the second tutorial.

From your workspace, run: ~/catkin_ws$ ./devel/lib/testbot_description/parser ./src/testbot_description/urdf/my_robot.urdf

It worked for me.

test this one in the path of the urdf file (<path of="" urdf="" file=""> :~/catkin_ws/src/testbot_description/urdf$) ~/catkin_ws/devel/lib/testbot_description/parser ~/catkin_ws/src/testbot_description/urdf/my_robot.urdf)

You can use rosrun urdfdom check_urdf [YOUR_FILE].

EDIT 1:

This is from the tutorial:

  $ rosmake urdfdom_model              # only needed if installed from source
  $ rosrun urdf check_urdf my_robot.urdf  # older versions
  $ rosrun urdf_parser check_urdf my_robot.urdf # electric and fuerte
  $ rosrun urdfdom check_urdf my_robot.urdf # groovy
  $
  $ ## see footnote at bottom of page for why above commands are different

Check what distro you are using.
