SVN Based Install (download-and-compile)
- install mercurial
- install cmake subversion
sudo zypper install cmake subversion python-setuptools gcc gcc-c++
- install libyaml from source.
wget http://pyyaml.org/download/libyaml/yaml-0.1.3.tar.gz -O ~/yaml-0.1.3.tar.gz tar -xzf ~/yaml-0.1.3.tar.gz cd ~/yaml-0.1.3 && ./configure && make && sudo make install
- easyinstall pyyaml
sudo easy_install pyyaml
Install following dependencies with devel versions(for installing Desktop-Full, also installing Gazebo) using yast or openSUSE(11.4) build service or from source
3. python-matplotlib, python-matplotlib-wx
5. Cg (Nvidia)
9. log4cxx (source install from Apache, will need to fix few files with missing #include's cstring, cstdlib, cstdio etc.)
10. gtest (source install from google code)
- The rosdep cannnot detect the OpenSUSE OS the commands below will fail to detect the os, add a "-n" option to not automatically build. Then you will need to build manually like this, after manuallly resolving the dependencies.
. ~/ros/setup.sh rosmake --no-rosdep rostest
The following lines will download the ROS source code using the rosinstall tool, and bootstrap the installation. The installation downloads all ROS stacks in subdirectories inside the ~/ros directory, one subdirectory for each stack in the rosinstall file.
First install rosinstall using pip (advanced options for pip):
sudo pip install -U rosinstall vcstools
There are many different libraries and tools in ROS. We provided four default configurations to get you started.
Desktop-Full Install: (Recommended): ROS Full, rviz, robot-generic libraries, 2D/3D simulators, navigation and 2D/3D perception
rosinstall ~/ros "http://packages.ros.org/cgi-bin/gen_rosinstall.py?rosdistro=electric&variant=desktop-full&overlay=no"
Desktop Install: : ROS Full, rviz, and robot-generic libraries
rosinstall ~/ros "http://packages.ros.org/cgi-bin/gen_rosinstall.py?rosdistro=electric&variant=desktop&overlay=no"
ROS-Full: ROS package, build, communication, and graphical tools.
rosinstall ~/ros "http://packages.ros.org/cgi-bin/gen_rosinstall.py?rosdistro=electric&variant=ros-full&overlay=no"
ROS-Base: (Bare Bones) ROS package, build, and communication libraries.
rosinstall ~/ros "http://packages.ros.org/cgi-bin/gen_rosinstall.py?rosdistro=electric&variant=ros-base&overlay=no"
NOTE: the instructions above download all stacks inside the ~/ros folder. If you prefer a different location, simply change the ~/ros in the commands above.
Please reference REP 113 for description of other available configurations.
You'll now need to update your environment. You can do this by typing:
It's convenient if the ROS environment variables are automatically added to your bash session every time a new shell is launched, which you can do with the command below:
echo "source ~/ros/setup.bash" >> ~/.bashrc . ~/.bashrc
For Zsh users, change the last line of ~/ros/setup.zsh to
before running source ~/ros/setup.zsh Similarly, have the setup script called at the start of each new shell session with
echo "source ~/ros/setup.zsh" >> ~/.zshrc . ~/.zshrc
Now, to test your installation, please proceed to the ROS Tutorials.
