I have the same problem. May have to abandon Indigo and go back to Hydro.

You will have to build from source, see http://www.ros.org/wiki/electric/Installation/Ubuntu/Source

2012-02-06 09:02:39 -0500 marked best answer Is $ROS_PACKAGE_PATH after source install okay?

That is the expected outcome, but you installed in a directory owned by root. I would suggest installing in your user home directory. rosinstall auto generates this based on what it installed. If you are going to build packages yourself, be sure to append to the $ROS_PACKAGE_PATH by following the instructions here http://www.ros.org/wiki/ROS/Tutorials/InstallingandConfiguringROSEnvironment

I think I see, but was hoping for a better installation. I.E. a start would have been to suggest this: rosinstall ~/ros/electric "http://packages.ros.org/cgi-bin/gen_rosinstall.py?rosdistro=electric&variant=desktop-full&overlay=no" but the stacks would not be nested. Yuk. Giving your answer a thumbs-up because I asked the question poorly.

/media is owned by root (just like /opt) but apps is owned by user lucid. My Linux partition didn't allow room for ROS so I installed to a different partition as the installation directions suggested is okay. The "expected outcome" is a bit of a mess, don't you think? Why not a similar directory structure as the binary installation?

After I did a source install to /media/apps/ros, as suggested in this question, is my $ROS_PACKAGE_PATH, shown below, okay? lucid@lucid-desktop:~$ echo $ROS_PACKAGE_PATH /media/apps/ros/robot_model_tutorials:/media/apps/ros/visualization_tutorials:/media/apps/ros/geometry_tutorials:/media/apps/ros/common_tutorials:/media/apps/ros/ros_tutorials:/media/apps/ros/documentation:/media/apps/ros/geometry_experimental:/media/apps/ros/robot_model_visualization:/media/apps/ros/geometry_visualization:/media/apps/ros/diagnostics_monitors:/media/apps/ros/executive_smach_visualization:/media/apps/ros/visualization:/media/apps/ros/slam_gmapping:/media/apps/ros/navigation:/media/apps/ros/vision_opencv:/media/apps/ros/laser_pipeline:/media/apps/ros/image_pipeline:/media/apps/ros/image_transport_plugins:/media/apps/ros/perception_pcl:/media/apps/ros/image_common:/media/apps/ros/rx:/media/apps/ros/visualization_common:/media/apps/ros/physics_ode:/media/apps/ros/stage:/media/apps/ros/simulator_gazebo:/media/apps/ros/simulator_stage:/media/apps/ros/xacro:/media/apps/ros/executive_smach:/media/apps/ros/robot_model:/media/apps/ros/assimp:/media/apps/ros/pluginlib:/media/apps/ros/orocos_kinematics_dynamics:/media/apps/ros/nodelet_core:/media/apps/ros/geometry:/media/apps/ros/bullet:/media/apps/ros/filters:/media/apps/ros/eigen:/media/apps/ros/driver_common:/media/apps/ros/diagnostics:/media/apps/ros/common:/media/apps/ros/common_msgs:/media/apps/ros/bond_core:/media/apps/ros/common_rosdeps:/media/apps/ros/ros_comm lucid@lucid-desktop:~$

I searched for this problem and saw nothing. Now, on the right, I see this issue http://answers.ros.org/question/1776/error-while-successful-sudo-apt-get-install-ros. Is it possible this is a mirror issue too? I'll look around for a way to change the mirror. I'm not a Linux expert yet.
2012-02-04 07:02:00 -0500 commented question ros-electric-desktop-full not found
Yes, You say "sudo apt-get upgrade" but I did "sudo apt-get update" per the instructions. Is that the problem? I don't have enough Karma to upload a screen shot, but in the Lucid "Software Sources, Other Software" tab; the item "http://packages.ros.org/ros/ubuntu lucid main" is checked.
2012-02-04 04:59:02 -0500 asked a question ros-electric-desktop-full not found

I am attempting to install ROS Electric on an iMX53 Quick Start board running Lucid Linux 10.04. It is an ARM Cortex A8. I am following the directions for Lucid at http://www.ros.org/wiki/electric/Installation/Ubuntu. Everything goes well until:

"sudo apt-get install ros-electric-desktop-full"

returns: "E: Couldn't find package ros-electric-desktop-full"

Suggestions? My skill level is high and I have previously successfully installed Electric on Maverick on an x86.

2012-01-31 06:01:32 -0500 answered a question problem in gpsd_client tutorials

Ken's sample code did not compile, under Electric, until I changed:

"using sensor_msgs;"

to:

using namespace sensor_msgs;

After that, thumbs-up.
