Hi, I am installing ROS1 on Ubuntu 16.04. I have followed the steps up to Section 3. Create a ROS Workspace of the installation tutorial.

http://wiki.ros.org/ROS/Tutorials/InstallingandConfiguringROSEnvironment#Install_ROS

I have executed:

$ mkdir -p ~/catkin_ws/src

$ cd ~/catkin_ws/

$ catkin_make

If I stay with Python 2.7, do I still need to execute the following two commands after catkin_make?

$ source devel/setup.bash

$ echo $ROS_PACKAGE_PATH

The command:

$ echo $ROS_PACKAGE_PATH

It is not needed, however, always when you're going to use a workspace you must source the setup.bash

"This command tells which packages are inside the workspace."

And it is not directly connected with your Python Version.
