I deleted the last line in the .bashrc file in my newly installed cturtle ROS under Ubuntu 10.10. Now no ROS commands will work as it cannot find the ROS path. I have found 'setup.bash' in the \opt\ros\cturtle path and presume this will update the .bashrc ? As a newcomer to Linux, how do I run 'setup.bash' or, what line must be in .bashrc ? Sorry for doing such a dumb move.

In order to get the ROS commands back, you simply have to run:

source /opt/ros/<DISTRO>/setup.bash

You can also add this command to the bottom of your .bashrc file.

THANK YOU! Works perfectly. Will try to learn how to use vi properly before editing .bashrc again!

VIM is a hard place to start if you are just getting started with Linux. Check out vimtutor if you are serious about VIM. Also, feel free to use nano or gedit while you are getting familiar with the command line.

gedit works a treat, so much easier, I'll use that for now.
