installing ros on a remote pc to control nao,then i use wstool & catkin installed the humanoid_msgs & nao_robot,this is my step:

1,$ cd ~/catkin_ws/src
2,$ wstool init
3,$ wstool set humanoid_msgs --git git://
4,$ wstool update (it's successful)
5,$ source /opt/ros/hydro/setup.bash
6,$ cd ~/catkin_ws
7,$ catkin_make  (it's successful)
8,$ source ~/catkin_ws/devel/setup.bash

there is no error.

i add path in my .bashrc:

export ROS_PACKAGE_PATH=~/ros_workspace/src:$ROS_PACKAGE_PATH
export PYTHONPATH=/home/cit/naoqi/naoqi-sdk-1.12.5-linux32/lib:$PYTHONPATH
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/cit/naoqi/naoqi-sdk-1.12.5-linux32/lib:$LD_LIBRARY$
source /opt/ros/hydro/setup.bash

then i follow the tutoral :

cit@cit-ThinkStation-S20:~/catkin_ws/src/ros_robot/nao_bringup$ roslaunch nao_bringup nao_sim.launch
[nao_sim.launch] is neither a launch file in package [nao_bringup] nor is [nao_bringup] a launch file name

maybe i miss something or do something wrong,i don't know,do you know?

You are missing one step of wstool set. I your commands, you only added humanoid_msgs, but not the nao_robot packages.

You also need to run wstool set nao_robot --git git:// and then run wstool update.

By the way, do not add the NaoQI SDK to your LD_LIBRARY_PATH, it could break all kinds of other programs and compilations! Only add the Python NaoQi SDK to your PYTHONPATH.

eee :( ,i use the same way to install the nao_robot,but nothing changed. maybe there are some possibility: 1,i install the humanoid_msgs & nao_robot int this location ~/catkin_ws/src/humanoid_msgs & nao_robot 2,my path is wrong: export ROS_PACKAGE_PATH=~/catkin_ws/src:$ROS_PACKAGE_PATH

Try to run `roscd nao_robot` or `roscd nao_driver`. If that fails then ROS cannot find the packages.

I don't know which tutorial you are following. I updated the instructions at They should be more clear now.
