ROSject C++ Galactic in 5 days: turtlebot3_teleop fails

I’ve done exactly as per the instructions (copy pasted all commands), but the teleop gives following error:

Hi @JRTG ,

Try this (in the exact order) and let us know

cd ~
source /opt/ros/noetic/setup.bash
source /opt/ros/galactic/setup.bash
cd ~/ros2_ws
source install/setup.bash
export TURTLEBOT3_MODEL=burger
ros2 run turtlebot3_teleop teleop_keyboard

Thank you for your suggestion.

The ‘source /opt/ros/galactic/setup.bash’ fails as it is a Foxy Rosject (even though it was started from the “C++ in 5 Days Galactic” course).

So I tried by sourcing foxy instead, but it still fails.

I think the "not found: “/home/user/ros2_ws/install/turtlebot3_node/share/turtlebot3_node/local_setup.bash” " might be key but I have no clue how to fix it.
I tried a ‘colcon build’ in the “/home/user/ros2_ws/” directory but that didn’t change anything.

Hi @JRTG ,

Ok, I just realized you were on ROSDS environment. I thought you were on course environment.
Anyways, try these in order and let us know!

cd ~
source /opt/ros/noetic/setup.bash
source ~/simulation_ws/devel/setup.bash
rosrun turtlebot3_teleop turtlebot3_teleop_key

These lines are already mentioned in the ROSDS rosject notebook.

This works, thank you very much!

@albertoezquerro I think this should be fixed in the instructions.

Regards,
Johan
