The Interactive Marker Tutorials depends on several ROS packages. Please install the visualization-tutorials developer stacks:

To use the Interactive Marker Tutorial in wviz, you will need the trunk of the remote_lab Stack:[[remote_lab]] and some additional packages such as rosbridge.

The following rosinstall file will get everything for you:

    uri: 'http://brown-ros-pkg.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/distribution/brown_remotelab/rosbridge'

Note: To use the rosinstall file, create a new directory (e.g. interactive_marker_tutorial), create a file named .rosinstall in this folder and paste the above text into it, go to the directory in a terminal and type

rosinstall . /opt/ros/electric
source ./setup.sh
rosmake rosjs_tutorials
