Hey guys,

I'm new to this ROS business and I needed help with TF and URDF. Usually I "svn co" something, but these two packages require me to "hg" the link. I have

"sudo apt-get install mercurial"

the mercurial SCM, but when i try to hg these packages it says

"abort: There is no Mercurial repository here (.hg not found)!"

I don't know where to go from here. Thanks in advance for the help!

Mercurial is pretty straightforward, as an example:

hg clone

You can always grab the latest version with:

hg pull
hg update

And you can see other branches with the "branches" command:

hg branches

For anything more than that, I would suggest the Mercurial Quickstart

Joel Spolsky's tutorial ( is excellent, as well.
