I used rostopic hz /camera/image, which returned the message 'subscribed to [/camera/image]'. I then did rostopic list -p, which returned nothing, as well as rostopic list -s, where /camera/image appeared. It looks like /camera/image is a subscriber and that nothing is being published to the topic.

I have not been able to make image_view work. Currently, when I run it a gray screen displays rather than an image.

My first thought is that that I don't have the topic correctly entered. I have tried rosrun image_view image_view image:=/camera/image and rosrun image_view image_view image:=/gscam/image_raw. Both lead to the same result. All of the packages needed are downloaded and compiled.

2013-06-14 06:51:41 -0500 asked a question Do not know why the master node is not running

I have an iRobot create, and after installing my packages and running a script, I get the error: Unable to register with master node [http://tahoma:11311]: master way not be running yet.

This seems to be a common problem, but I haven't been able to make the troubleshooting solutions work. I ran roscore - no errors pop up, and I expected this would start up the master node. But running the script still returns the original error.

What explanations could there be for the master node to not be running?
