Dear Users,

I started to study on ROS-Industrial Training Material kinetic. I am stuck on the first step: PC Setup. 
I tried "PC Configuration" step; comleted that "shell script" on github succesfully. 
Then, I checked configuration . As it is said there; I run this code "~/industrial_training/.check_training_config.bash" , but it gives this error: bash: /home/user/industrial_training/.check_training_config.bash: No such file or directory

I opened home/user directory (even showed the hidden files), but there is not industrial_training file there. 

However, during the executing of these codes (, I didn't have any problem, I executed those codes line by line. And I thought that those codes would create that "industrial_training" folder inside home/user directory.

Do you have any suggestions?
Kind regards,

Josh Langsfeld

Hello Ercan,

It looks like you discovered a mistake in the training documentation. The step to get the industrial_training repository is not noted for the “PC Configuration” method. We will get that fixed right away.

In the meantime, all you should need to do to get the repo is run git clone -b kinetic_devel ~/industrial_training. Then you can run the .check_training_config.bash file to verify your environment.
