trouble creating sandbox in groovy

Trying to install groovy on a 64 bit HP G62 running Ubuntu 12.04. Followed installation instructions up to 4.2 Creating a sandbox directory for new packages.

Under 4.1 Creating a new workspace, I changed out rosws init ~/fuerte_workspace /opt/ros/fuerte to rosws init ~/groovy_workspace /opt/ros/groovy

$echo ROS_PACKAGE_PATH returned /opt/ros/groovy/share:/opt/ros/groovy/stacks

I checked in the home folder and groovy_workspace was indeed created. Sandbox folder was created in the groovy_workspace folder. Thinking it odd that my package path didn't match, I continued on to the the tutorials to see what would happen.

Had no problems until I got to the point where it tells you to run roscd by itself.

this is what I got: No ROS_WORKSPACE set. Please set ROS_WORKSPACE to use roscd with no arguments.

tried the whole procedure again but as written in the wiki, not substituting groovy for fuerte, same result. (fuerte_workspace created, sandbox inside, but all else exactly the same). Not sure what I'm doing wrong, would appreciate some guidance.

regards, Richard
