SITL on Linux using VMware Error

 I just started SITL for Windows using ArduPilot. I am at the Step 7 of setting up SITL using Linux. I keep getting an error " wp:command not found" whenever i use "wp load ../Tools/autotest/ArduPlane-Missions/CMAC-toff-loop.txt".

 I have already checked for the paths in .bashrc and changed them accordingly as some of the mavproxy stuff didn't get installed in the Home directory. I also ran the line endings fixes by doing the dos2unix.

So, this is the only place I am getting stuck at and don't understand why it can't find the command. Let me know if you need anymore details.

Thanks.

  • Thomas,

    Make sure that when you enter the wp command that the mavproxy.py script has loaded and you are entering the command "wp load..." into the mavproxy interface.

  • Just further information on the wiki links I followed for trying to setup the SITL.

    I started with trying to setup SITL on Windows

    http://dev.ardupilot.com/wiki/setting-up-sitl-on-windows/

    which basically guides you to setting up a Virtual Machine with Ubuntu and installing the necessary files for SITL on Linux.

    I am currently stuck at the step 7 with it not able to understand the command .

    I am new to the whole UAV- Linux development environment and would appreciate any thoughts or help with regards to this.

    Thanks !
