Description: Installing the rocon_app_platform/rocon_concert environment.

Keywords: rocon concert app_manager installation

Tutorial Level: BEGINNER

Next Tutorial: Software Concert Demos

Ubuntu Binaries


Follow the generic ubuntu instructions for a ros-groovy-desktop-full installation.

Then the rocon stacks and zeroconf.

> sudo apt-get install ros-groovy-zeroconf-avahi ros-groovy-rocon ros-groovy-rocon-rqt-plugins


In different shells:

> . /opt/ros/groovy/setup.bash
> rocon_launch chatter_concert chatter.concert

> . /opt/ros/groovy/setup.bash
> rqt_gateway_graph


The rocon concert stacks have been catkinized.


Follow the generic ubuntu instructions for a ros-groovy-desktop-full installation. You will also need:

> sudo apt-get install ros-groovy-zeroconf-avahi ros-groovy-rqt

Source Repos

> mkdir ~/concert
> cd ~/concert
> wstool init src https://raw.github.com/robotics-in-concert/rocon_concert/groovy-devel/rocon.rosinstall


> source /opt/ros/groovy/setup.bash
> cd ~/concert/src
> export ROS_PACKAGE_PATH=~/concert/src:/opt/ros/groovy/share:/opt/ros/groovy/stacks
> rosdep -i install rocon_multimaster rocon_app_platform rocon_concert


> source /opt/ros/groovy/setup.bash
> cd ~/concert
> catkin_make -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/opt/concert/groovy
# Optionally
> cd build; sudo make install


If you're not familiar to catkin, you then need to source the development workspace before being able to run roscore, roslaunch etc.

> cd ~/concert/devel
> source ./setup.bash
# Testing
> rocon_launch chatter_concert chatter.concert
