:~$ rosrun rviz rviz

[rospack] couldn't find package [rviz]

My guess is that your ROS_PACKAGE_PATH is missing the stacks directory. It should read something like: "other stuff":/opt/ros/diamondback/stacks

Please provide more details about what instructions you followed, e.g. apt-get vs. source install. Please also provide information on your environment variables, like ROS_PACKAGE_PATH.

See for examples of information that are useful.
