2013-07-06 02:50:54 -0500 asked a question Cannot launch node of type [joint_state_publisher/joint_state_publisher]

I have the latest beta version of hydro installed on Ubuntu 13.04 and encountered this error when going through the urdf_tutorials:

ERROR: cannot launch node of type [joint_state_publisher/joint_state_publisher]: can't locate node [joint_state_publisher] in package [joint_state_publisher]

I have installed joint_state_publisher, and checked again:

$ rosdep install joint_state_publisher
#All required rosdeps installed successfully

$ rosrun joint_state_publisher joint_state_publisher
[rosrun] Couldn't find executable named joint_state_publisher below /opt/ros/hydro/share/joint_state_publisher
[rosrun] Found the following, but they're either not files,
[rosrun] or not executable:
[rosrun]   /opt/ros/hydro/share/joint_state_publisher

There is a folder in share for joint_state_publisher, but no executable code:

$ ls /opt/ros/hydro/share/joint_state_publisher/
cmake  package.xml

There is nothing in lib or include

$ ls /opt/ros/hydro/lib | grep joint_state_publisher
$ ls /opt/ros/hydro/include/ | grep joint_state_publisher

I'm not sure if this is where I should be publishing problems with pre-releases, so please direct me to the correct forum.

2013-06-20 04:48:08 -0500 asked a question Wiki beginner tutorials changed

I was working through the beginner tutorials and noticed that they changed last night. The ROS tutorials now are specific to catkin. Nothing about services, messages or creating publishers and subscribers. What is the procedure for undoing changes to the wiki?
