ROS Noetic Call for Testing

We’re preparing for the release of Noetic Ninjemys on May 23rd, and would like to ask for your help in testing the pre-release.

What needs to be tested?

Installation and documentation!

How do I get the pre-release?

Add the ros-testing apt repo to get the pre-release ROS Noetic Debian packages on Ubuntu Focal or Debian Buster.

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://packages.ros.org/ros-testing/ubuntu $(lsb_release -sc) main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-testing.list'

If you need stable packages, then don’t forget to remove that when you’re done testing!

What do I do if there is a problem?

  1. Software bug?
    Open an issue on any repository you think the bug could be in.
    Also, please ping me (@sloretz) on Github so I can at least add it to the Known issues list below.
  2. Documentation issue?
    Fix it please :slight_smile:
    Log in to your ROS wiki account and click “Edit (Text)” on the right side bar.
  3. Notice something changed in Noetic?
    Add it to the Noetic Migration Guide.
  4. Not sure if it’s an issue?
    Ask a question on https://answers.ros.org with the noetic tag!
  5. Something that doesn’t fit any of the above?
    Post it to this thread (but only for the pre-release please; once Noetic is out please use ROS Answers per the ROS Contributing docs).

Hey

Thanks for the update. I have submitted few issues in Github regarding the

/usr/bin/env: process[turtle_pointer-5]: started with pid [4834]
‘python’: No such file or directory
issue.

Getting this error in some of the rospy tutorials. Possibly the
shebang is not replaced with

#!/usr/bin/env python3

Regards
Lentin

Thanks! I’m having trouble locating the issues you submitted. Mind posting links to them?

Also, is this your github account?

Hi @sloretz

Here is the issue with xacro.py

Its started working when I change the shebang

to #!/usr/bin/env python3

Please have a look

Regards

I have recently shifted from ROS -Melodic to Noetic. I have a UR5 model in xacro which perfectly gets launched in Noetic with all controllers working. But I don’t see my FT sensor publishing wrench values to ros topic. Is the FT sensor plugin successfully released for Noetic? If not when will it be released? And if it has been released how should I modify my urdf ?

I’m also getting reports of pluginlib issues here saying that LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libjemalloc.so.2 is required before launching a process loading certain plugins or else it can’t find the shared libraries.

This hasn’t been an issue in releasing Indigo - Melodic on STVL and similar projects. Perhaps something changed in 20.04?

@Murtaza786-oss I think this is a better question for https://answers.ros.org per the ROS Contributing docs. I replied here: https://answers.ros.org/question/353417/how-to-use-ft_sensor-plugin-in-ros-noetic/?answer=353995#post-id-353995

@smac Replied on the issue here: https://github.com/SteveMacenski/spatio_temporal_voxel_layer/issues/167#issuecomment-638327656

Thanks for all the help testing!

Now that Noetic Ninjemys has been released, please ask questions on https://answers.ros.org when looking for help and open issues on repositories when encountering bugs.
