These instructions will guide you through upgrading your TurtleBot from Diamondback to Electric
- Open a terminal window
- Update apt repos
sudo apt-get update
- Install new electric packages
sudo apt-get install ros-electric-turtlebot-robot
- Source setup.bash
Configure upstart to use electric. <wireless-id> should be something like "wlan0".
roscd turtlebot_bringup/upstart sudo ./install.bash <wireless-id>
- Edit your ~/.bashrc by replacing all instances of "diamondback" with "electric"
- Restart your turtlebot computer for changes to take effect.
- You may optionally remove the Diamondback install to save space. Keeping the old version of ROS around is not a problem, just be sure your paths always point to /opt/ros/electric.
sudo apt-get remove ros-diamondback-turtlebot-robot
