Ubuntu install of C turtle

We are building Debian packages for several Ubuntu platforms, listed below. These packages are more efficient than SVN-based builds and are our preferred installation method for Ubuntu.

Installation

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'

Mirrors

Set up your keys

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

Installation

Make sure you have re-indexed the ROS.org server:

From April 2011, karmic will no longer be available in Ubuntu's archive because the support period officially ended. If you still want to stick to karmic, you might need some workaround, to modify /etc/apt/sources.list, to set domains of repository URLs to old-releases for all URLs in the file (workaround found here).

Choose your preferred install:

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

Tutorials

Now, to test your installation, please proceed to the ROS Tutorials.
