Hi there,

I was wondering if pr2_cockpit is released in electric. I was trying to use teleop_controllers package but it wasn't there in electric. Should I stay in diamondback to use it?

The JTTeleop controller is now located in robot_mechanism_controllers and it shows up in the controller manager as robot_mechanism_controllers/JTCartesianController.

Hi Sarah,

I don't think that is the same controller. A quick vimdiff on the source showed too many differences. I guess there are different cartesian controllers. If you need the teleop_controller package you can just download from here: and compile it. That worked for me. I don't don't know if and when the pr2_cockpit stack will be available for Electric as a Debian package.

Hi Juergen, I looked into this and read through the code. It was reorganized and updated but the majority of the code is the same. At first glance the code seems functionally identical. I need to look/test more. We release our packages as Debian releases so a Debian dependency is necessary.
