The fuerte installation process described on this page is not fully available and tested yet. We are working on making it available as soon as possible. If you discover problems, please write to email@example.com.
These instructions only cover installing Care-O-bot-related software on a supported Ubuntu-based machine. The installation is tested for Ubuntu 14.04. If you discover problems installing them on other platforms, please tell us.
These instructions cover installing Care-O-bot-related ROS Indigo software on a supported Ubuntu-based machine. For an overview of Care-O-bot software and ROS, please see the Care-O-bot software overview.
Configure your Ubuntu repositories
Configure your Ubuntu repositories to allow "restricted," "universe," and "multiverse." You can follow the Ubuntu guide for instructions on doing this.
Setup your sources.list
Setup your computer to accept software from packages.ros.org.
sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://packages.ros.org/ros/ubuntu $(lsb_release -sc) main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list'
Set up your keys
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver 'hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80' --recv-key C1CF6E31E6BADE8868B172B4F42ED6FBAB17C654
If you experience issues connecting to the keyserver, you can try substituting hkp://pgp.mit.edu:80 or hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 in the previous command.
Alternatively, you can use curl instead of the apt-key command, which can be helpful if you are behind a proxy server:
curl -sSL 'http://keyserver.ubuntu.com/pks/lookup?op=get&search=0xC1CF6E31E6BADE8868B172B4F42ED6FBAB17C654' | sudo apt-key add -
Install all Care-O-bot stacks
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-care-o-bot
It's convenient if the ROS environment variables are automatically added to your bash session every time a new shell is launched:
echo "source /opt/ros/indigo/setup.bash" >> ~/.bashrc source ~/.bashrc
If you have more than one ROS distribution installed, ~/.bashrc must only source the setup.bash for the version you are currently using.
If you just want to change the environment of your current shell, you can type:
If you use zsh instead of bash you need to run the following commands to set up your shell:
echo "source /opt/ros/indigo/setup.zsh" >> ~/.zshrc source ~/.zshrc
