PC packages installation
In this section we will present the installation of all required packages for the workstation.
2. ROS installation
In order to fully test the robots features we recommend using:
· Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
· ROS Indigo
The Ubuntu installation is beyond the scope of this tutorial, please refer to: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/install-ubuntu-desktop
We recommend following the tutorial for ROS Indigo install on ROS Wiki: http://wiki.ros.org/indigo/Installation/Ubuntu
Please note that the Desktop-Full Install configuration is mandatory in order to test all functionalities of the robot:
$ sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-desktop-full
To test your installation, please proceed to the ROS Tutorials http://wiki.ros.org/ROS/Tutorials
3. Mini-Lab packages installation
The packages should be ready after compiling the workspace:
$ cd ~/catkin_ws/ $ catkin_make
For ROS INDIGO and later you should install the navigation gmapping and robot_state_publisher before compiling the workspace.
$ sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-gmapping ros-indigo-navigation ros-indigo-robot-state-publisher
