I have installed and compiled the latest version of the rosserial stack. I have been attempting to run the samples (Hello World, etc.), after I wasn't able to get my own code to work. It turns out, none of the sample work properly.

For example, the hello world sample, when I start the python client there are no errors, but the topic from the arduino is never published.

i.e. run: roscore rosrun rosserial_python serial_node.py /dev/ttyUSB0
rostopic list

The topic is not there.

I have verified that the arduino is running properly, and on the correct port (and no port errors are given). The only output is: [INFO] [WallTime: 1331948389.955027] ROS Serial Python Node [INFO] [WallTime: 1331948389.956859] Connected on /dev/ttyUSB0 at 57600 baud

Device is Diecimila, running on ros-electric/Ubuntu 11.04 Natty

No errors in making the packages, etc.

Do you see the message "Lost sync with device, restarting..."?

Maybe you could try with another Arduino if you have one nearby. I completed these tutorials a few weeks ago using indigo-ubuntu 12.04 lts with a duemilanove just for configuration informations and to confirm that it is supposed to work.

Best regards,
