Status of Packages

source repos continuous integration

Repos (containing ROS core and more)

We have changed the version scheme in our binary repos. If you installed ROS before 20150929 please downgrade all packages to the current versions.

Debian Stretch/Sid (amd64):

   1 sudo sh -c 'echo "deb unstable main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian-robotics.list'
   2 sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys 63DE76AC0B6779BF

Debian Jessie (amd64):

   1 sudo sh -c 'echo "deb jessie-robotics main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian-robotics.list'
   2 sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys 63DE76AC0B6779BF

Ubuntu Trusty:

   1 sudo add-apt-repository ppa:deb-rob/ros-trusty

Compile the rest of desktop-full

Installing the needed packages:

   1 sudo apt-get update
   2 sudo apt-get install ros-desktop-full-depends

Compile the rest (leave out the tutorials line, if you want them):

   1 mkdir ~/ros
   2 cd ~/ros
   3 rosinstall_generator desktop_full --rosdistro indigo --deps --wet-only --tar --exclude RPP \
   4  common_tutorials geometry_tutorials ros_tutorials visualization_tutorials urdf_tutorial \
   5  ros_base geometry > indigo-desktop-full-wet.rosinstall
   6 wstool init -j8 src indigo-desktop-full-wet.rosinstall
   7 catkin_make_isolated --install

To use the local ROS workspace:

   1 echo "source ~/ros/install_isolated/setup.bash" >> ~/.bashrc
   2 source ~/ros/install_isolated/setup.bash
