Workstation not connecting to the robot

Hello, I am having trouble connecting the workstation to the robot. I am able to ssh into the robot and run the demos there successfully but I cannot run the demos in the workstation. In your documentation called “How to set up a ROS workstation” it states that if I am able to see a list of topic by running “rostopic list” then I am connected. Yet, whenever I try to run the teleop_twist_keyboard on the workstation I get this “[rospack] Error: package ‘teleop_twist_keyboard’ not found”.

I have also ran the following line in the workstation “sudo apt install ros-kinetic-magni-robot” and was able to install it correctly but still cannot run teleop_twist_keyboard

Any help is appreciated.

Hey @chromefirefox,

Looks like teleop_twist_keyboard isn’t already installed and magni_robot is not pulling it in as a dependency. You can manually install it with sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-teleop-twist-keyboard.

Hello @rohbotics

I did the manual install and still receive “[rospack] Error: package ‘teleop_twist_keyboard’ not found”.

What version of ROS and Ubuntu are you running on your workstation?

Did you add the source /opt/ros/kinetic/setup.bash to your bashrc?


On the work station alone, can you:

roslaunch Magni-gazebo empty-world.launch



I am running ROS Kinetic and Ubuntu 16.04 on both the workstation and the robot.

I am sure it is something I am missing on my part as this is my first time working with ROS.

@anfederman I cannot. I am positive I am doing something wrong since this is my first time working with ROS. I’m just not sure what it is.

sorry uploaded the wrong screenshot

Hey @chromefirefox,

Did you add the source /opt/ros/kinetic/setup.bash to the end of your .bashrc file?

Sorry @rohbotics I completely forgot to answer that question earlier. Yes, I do believe I have that line in my .bashrc file.

@rohbotics I got figured it out, thanks!


Glad you got it figured out, but can you please post the solution so that other people can find it if they run into the same issue?


Yes, it was a beginner mistake on my part. I forgot to catkin_make after manually installing teleop-twist. THank you
