I'm new to ROS so I'm following the beginner tutorials. After following the install and configuration steps for my system (ubuntu 13.04), I get the following message from roswtf;

==============================================================

Static checks summary:

Found 2 warning(s). Warnings are things that may be just fine, but are sometimes at fault

WARNING You are missing core ROS Python modules: rosrelease -- WARNING You are missing Debian packages for core ROS Python modules: rosrelease (python-rosrelease) --

Found 2 error(s).

ERROR Not all paths in ROS_PACKAGE_PATH [/home/gaynier/catkin_ws/src:/opt/ros/hydro/share:/opt/ros/hydro/stacks] point to an existing directory:

  • /opt/ros/hydro/stacks

ERROR Not all paths in PYTHONPATH [/home/gaynier/catkin_ws/devel/lib/python2.7/dist-packages:/opt/ros/hydro/lib/python2.7/dist-packages] point to a directory:

  • /home/gaynier/catkin_ws/devel/lib/python2.7/dist-packages

==========================================================================

Sooooo, wtf?

I had the first error as well, and I found that it is fixed if you go to /opt/ros/hydro/stacks and then do

mkdir stacks

then you will no longer have the error pop-up. I am relatively new to ROS so I don't know what the folder was for or what this quickfix will do in the long run, but it fixes it for now.

I assume the second error could be fixed via a similar method, but i'd make sure all of your python stuff is up to date on your system before that.
