Installing the differential_drive package


Tutorial Level: BEGINNER

Next Tutorial: differential_drive setup


You'll need to have rosinstall installed, and have created an overlay as in The overlays tutorial


With rosinstall, the installation is as easy as:

roslocate info differential_drive | rosws merge -
rosws update

ROS Groovy is giving an error (see []), in the mean time this is an alternate install method:

rosws set differential_drive --git
rosws update

Next: differential_drive setup
