Installing the OpenHaptics SDK

The script install_open_haptics.sh is provided as a convenient way to install the SDK. However, as of Ubuntu 10.10, this script no longer works (see notes below), so it's recommended that you install the SDK manually.

If you want to use the script anyway, place the downloaded SDK into the phantom_omni package:

mv OpenHapticsAE_Linux_v3_0.zip `rospack find phantom_omni`/

Launch the installation script:

roscd phantom_omni

Compiling and Starting

Make and run the omni node with:

rosmake phantom_omni
rosrun phantom_omni omni




In the below, replace OMNI_NAME with the appropriate value set for the parameter ~omni_name (defaults to omni1)
