Before you begin

If you don't know what the problem is yet or how to fix it, try running roswtf first, which is like a FAQ implemented in code. It will look at your configuration and what is running and try and diagnose problems. You can either run it by itself, or you can give it the name of a roslaunch file, e.g.



roswtf myfile.launch

If you're having problems with things that are running, try running roswtf while they are still up.
