Dear Ivan,
many thanks for  your reply. 

I am actually trying to install the 'scan_tools' stack, which contains the 
package 'csm_install'. I tried two ways to install 'scan_tools' stack:

1.  sudo apt-get install ros-diamondback-scan_tools
    This will return 'Coundn't find package ros-diamondback-scan_tools'
2. I follow the install instruction http://www.ros.org/wiki/scan_tools
    cd ~/ros/stacks
    git clone http://robotics.ccny.cuny.edu/git/ccny-ros-pkg.git
    cd ~/ros/stacks/ccny-ros-pkg
    rosmake scan_tools --rosdep-install

 This is where the 'csm_install fatal error' occurs.

Besides, my stacks is under '/opt/ros/diamondback/stacks' instead of 
'~/ros/stacks'. It seems I do not have '~/ros' directory. Does this clarify my 

Best regards. Thanks a lot.

Hm I just tested installing on my machine and it works.

What terminal command causes the error that you're getting?

My guess is that you're trying to install it somewhere where you need
root permissions, like /opt/ros. If this is the case, you should
install it in ~/ros instead.

Let me know if that doesn't fix it.
