Hi guys, after the successful installation of rviz_qt, I tried to make Stage4 to work with the new rviz_qt as mentioned in this post. I have applied patches here and here,successfully installed Stage4 by homebrew. However I have got the same problem which is mentioned here. My question is, since I have already had the Stage4 installed, why shall I still have to compile stage from source? My understand is Stage4 is a standalone simulator, and stageros is just a ros wrapper of stage. When working together, stageros node provides interface between ros and stage. Is it right?
I would assume that you are either on diamondback or electric; both of these ROS distributions provide Stage 3.2.2 and not Stage 4.X.X. What I understand from Woodall's blog, is that his installation of stage/stageros provided with ROS did did not work on OS-X that is why he went on to install Stage 4.X.X separately and then he probably linked it up with ROS.
Yes, you are right stage is standalone, stageros is the wrapper for ROS, see here - http://answers.ros.org/question/2004/what-are-the-differences-between-stage-and.
Hope that answers your question.
