I am in ubuntu 11.10 , electric ros package. I also rosmake pr2_controller_manager and download the source code from svn teleop_controllers. Thanks for any help. Zhenli

in ROS Electric the controller moved to the robot_mechanism_controllers package.

In the launch file you had to create during the tutorial, change the controller type from "JTTeleopController" to "robot_mechanism_controllers/JTCartesianController". Then it should work.

Best, Juergen
