Hi Guys,

I am facing the below issue while running roslaunch carla_ros_bridge client.launch.

I have updated the PYTHONPATH as mentioned in the RlEADME and also I am getting success if I run python -c 'import carla;print("Success")'.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/user/ros/catkin_ws_for_carla/src/src/carla_ros_bridge/", line 14, in <module>
    import carla
  File "/home/kishor/Carla_Sim/PythonAPI/carla-0.9.2-py3.5-linux-x86_64.egg/carla/", line 7, in <module>

Previously I had faced the similar issue, I was able to fix and posted the fix here. But now I am not able to see the post.

Could you please help me to fix the issue.

Thank you, KK

I am not sure, but isn’t ROS using Python2 by default? Try setting the PYTHONPATH to point to the egg file for Python 2.7. Does it help?

@fpasch Sorry. I did not realize I was posting in carla-ros-bridge support. Thank you for your patience.
