I have a small issue with my ROS_PACKAGE_PATH environment variable.

I am going through the ROS Beginner tutorials, and I notice that I have some extra directories on my ROS_PACKAGE_PATH that don't actually exist.

The problem arose when I was doing step 3 of the overlays tutorial. I specified the wrong parameters in my rosws set command. It still added the local directory to my ROS_PACKAGE_PATH, but the local repository/directory does not exist.

In other words, this is my ROS_PACKAGE_PATH: /home/developer/fuerte_workspace/clearpath_common:/home/developer/fuerte_workspace/husky:/home/developer/fuerte_workspace/clearpath:/home/developer/fuerte_workspace/sandbox:/opt/ros/fuerte/stacks:/opt/ros/fuerte/share:/opt/ros/fuerte/share/ros

The entries that end in "clearpath" and "husky" were erroneous attempts and do not exist locally. Is there some sort of "rosws unset" command or some other way that I can clean-up my path?

Thank you for reading.

use rosws remove.

Or you can always remove entries from your .rosinstall file manually.
