Install the ric metapackage
Follow these steps (change 'catkin_ws' to your ROS workspace name):
$ sudo apt-get update $ cd ~/catkin_ws/src $ git clone -b indigo-devel https://github.com/robotican/ric.git $ cd .. $ catkin_make $ roscd ric_robot/config/ $ sudo ./setup.sh $ cd ~/catkin_ws $ catkin_make
