Hello everybody!

I've a problem with ROS_PACKAGE_PATH. First I tried to ad the path to my workspace with this command line source ~/catkin_ws/devel/setup.bash After I check the PATH echo $ROS_PACKAGE_PATH And It's OK : /home/andrei/catkin_ws/src:/opt/ros/indigo/share:/opt/ros/indigo/stacks


But there no more the path to recently added directory when I close the terminal or I open a new terminal Tab.

How do you think, where is my mistake?

Thank you!!!!

This is completely normal behaviour. Either resource it every time or add the source... line to your ~/.bashrc, so it is done automatically.
