I've installed boxturtle on ubuntu 10.04 and I'm receiving the following error when attempting to install the tutorials:

"ERROR: Failed to install tree 'ros_tutorials' using command: svn co /home/user/ros-tutorials/ros-tuturials Perhaps there is another installation in the way, or there are permissions issues."

Is there a workaround for this or is there a permission I'm missing? My current permissions for this folder are: drwxr-xr-x

edit retag flag offensive close merge delete


Please note, boxturtle is really old. The current release is Diamondback, and Eturtle is just around the corner.

Does the folder already exist? I.e. is it "in the way"?

Then try removing it first. If the permissions are for the parent, it should work.
