do you have the yaml package installed in your system? sudo apt install python-yaml

yes, in fact I use it in other developments without problems >>python-yaml ya está en su versión más reciente (3.11-3build1).

Hi Santi, maybe you have python3 installed on your machine and it is the default interpreter. Try to run with the python2.7 interpreter: python2 /opt/jderobot/share/jderobot/python/uav_viewer_py/ uav_viewer_py.yml We use 2.7 to be fully compatible with ROS-Kinect
