[ros-users] rviz disappearing from my install

Tim, I think this type of question might be a better asked at
http://answers.ros.org/questions/ in the future, but I would think that
perhaps you lost rviz in the transition from Diamondback to Electric due to
changes in the variant definitions?

Another reason might be that the visualization packages got auto-removed due
to some dependency mix up with Ubuntu's apt-get, this kind of thing happened
to me during a distro upgrade (like from 10.10 to 11.04).

But honestly if you were to ask me hypothetically, I would say it shouldn't

A good thing to do might be to reinstall the desktop-full variant to ensure
you have all the packages you need.

Hope that helps,

P.S. War Eagle!  It's good to see ROS has reached the Tennessee Valley! (I'm
from Decatur originally)
