Source-based installation

Currently source-based installation is provided.

These instructions assume that you are comfortable with ROS and the catkin build system. Please familiarize yourself using the ROS and catkin tutorials.

First of all open a terminal and create an empty workspace:

  • mkdir ~/talos_public_ws
    cd ~/talos_public_ws

Download the file talos_tutorials.rosinstall. Copy the rosinstall file in ~/talos_public_ws. Then run the following instruction in order to clone all the required repositories within the workspace:

  • rosinstall src /opt/ros/melodic talos_public.rosinstall

Set up rosdep

  • sudo rosdep init
    rosdep update

Then you may run the following instruction to make sure that all dependencies referenced in the workspace are installed

  •  rosdep install -y --from-paths src --ignore-src --rosdistro melodic --skip-keys="opencv2 pal_laser_filters speed_limit_node sensor_to_cloud hokuyo_node libdw-dev gmock walking_utils rqt_current_limit_controller simple_grasping_action reemc_init_offset_controller walking_controller current_limit_controller urdf_test"

Then, you may proceed building the workspace:

  • source /opt/ros/melodic/setup.bash
    catkin build -DCATKIN_ENABLE_TESTING=0

Once you compiled all packages and sourced the environment (source devel/setup.bash) it's all ready to go.
