I am working on the last bit of section 9 which is creating my own custom action server message.
I’ve followed the instructions and here is my action server message(I am working on the quiz as well so I use actions_quiz as my package name)
And edited my CMakeLists.txt and package.xml
And I run catkin_make and source devel/setup.bash
Everything seems fine.
When I try to find this custom message with command
rosmsg list | grep action_custom
I couldn’t find anything. So what am I doing wrong here?
Hi Joseph, try adding
catkin_make, and you can check the msg files of your action file by going to
let me know if that works for you.
Thanks a lot for the reply! I tried it and notice in devel/share/ I don’t even have actions_quiz file.
Seems catkin_make did not run properly? I am not 100% sure how to handle the situation.
My best guess is should I try to execute catkin_clean wipe everything and redo it?
Yes, delete your build and devel folders and run catkin_make again:
rm -rf build/
rm -rf devel/
Thanks a lot for the reply again. I am running into another issue while catkin_make.
My understanding is that something is wrong with my CMakelists.txt/package.xml
I included std_msgs, actionlib_msgs and rospy.
What else I should put in
Hi Joseph, did you source your ROS environment? This is done by running the command
If it still gives you problems, then maybe you also have to source your workspace with
