Installation Instructions

These instructions cover installing Care-O-bot-related ROS C-Turtle software on a supported Ubuntu-based machine. For more 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 sources.list file to accept Debian packages from the ROS server.

  • Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty)

    • sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://code.ros.org/packages/ros/ubuntu jaunty main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list'

    Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic)

    • sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://code.ros.org/packages/ros/ubuntu karmic main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list'

    Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid)

    • sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://code.ros.org/packages/ros/ubuntu lucid main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list'

    Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick)

    • sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://code.ros.org/packages/ros/ubuntu maverick main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list'


Set up your keys

  • wget http://code.ros.org/packages/ros.key -O - | sudo apt-key add -


Install all Care-O-bot stacks

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ros-cturtle-care-o-bot

Environment setup

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/cturtle/setup.bash" >> ~/.bashrc
. ~/.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:

source /opt/ros/cturtle/setup.bash


Proceed to the Care-O-bot tutorials.
