Hi,

I was trying to run the image_view node, but it was not successful..it is the package and its binary but cannot be run. I was actually following "http://www.ros.org/wiki/openni_camera" to invoke "rosrun image_view image_view image_view image:=/camera/rgb/image_color". Unfortunately, the output I obtained is "[rospack] couldn't find package [image_view] " . The node is already there in fact as I navigate, I could find in "/opt/ros/diamondback/stacks/image_pipeline/image_view/bin$"

Any ideas??

Please see: http://www.ros.org/wiki/Support#Guidelines_for_mailing_list_messages. In particular be sure to copy and paste your commandline and the output you get (how do you know it was "not successful"?)

I've just successfully found the solution. I've run this command: "source /opt/ros/diamondback/setup.bash" :-). To be precise run as recommended in the ROS wiki: echo "source /opt/ros/cturtle/setup.bash" >> ~/.bashrc . ~/.bashrc

That will work until the next time you login or create a new terminal window. For a permanent fix, add it to the end of your `~/.bashrc`, as recommended in the install instructions.

Looks like a ROS_PACKAGE_PATH issue. One possibility: when you ran rosinstall in following the openni installation instructions, did you point it to /opt/ros/diamondback? (this is noted in the install instructions but it's subtle).

I run all the commands given in the installation instructions and try to run "export ROS_PACKAGE_PATH=$PWD:$ROS_PACKAGE_PATH" in the image_view directory..but still, no change..Could you make it more explicit on how should I point/remedy it.

If diamondback was installed properly from debs then you shouldn't have to add image_view explicitly to ROS_PACKAGE_PATH, so I suspect there's a larger issue here. Can you try running some other nodes? Can you do basic things like roscore, rostopic list, etc.? Have you tried roswtf?

There are 3 errors outputted. It seems that my ROS system is using unstable one, though I prefer to use diamondback instead. I can run other nodes, but it is actually using unstable version, which I do not want. I run "roscd", it gave this path: /opt/ros/unstable/ros$

You probably need to update your ~/.bashrc file if you've changed distributions from unstable->diamondback. It should have the line "source /opt/ros/diamondback/setup.bash" -- and none that mention cturtle or unstable (it would appear you might currently have all three).

in ~/.bashrc, i have these for the last 3 related lines: source /opt/ros/cturtle/setup.sh source /opt/ros/diamondback/setup.bash source /home/shah/ni/setup.bash, I commented the first line (cturtle), however, when I run roscd I still give me ":/opt/ros/unstable/ros$" as the output, that means it is still pointing to the unstable..any thoughts?

Another thing the error is reduced to one already after running "roswtf", the output is "Loaded plugin tf.tfwtf No package or stack in context ================================================================================ Static checks summary: Found 1 error(s). ERROR PYTHONPATH [/opt/ros/unstable/ros/core/roslib/src:/opt/ros/diamondback/ros/core/roslib/src:] is invalid: Multiple roslib directories in PYTHONPATH (there should only be one) ================================================================================ ROS Master does not appear to be running.
