I'm trying to build gscam fro groovy on ubuntu 12.04armhf and get a message that quite a few deps are not released. Looking at the status page, it shows that it is not available for GsrcP 433 and GbinParmhf 455. Apparently mine is that version. Since the package is maintained by J. Bohren and R. Toris, I would like to know if the deps problem is indeed the reason it is missing.

There's a build of gscam available in the latest set of binary builds of Groovy for ARM. Note that the repository URL and key have changed:

Since this link mentions Raring, is this only for Raring or for Precise as well? I'm using Precise.

Sorry; my initial response had the wrong link. Yes, this applies to Precise as well.

Thanks. I have tried to install gscam using "sudo apt-get update" and "sudo apt-get install ros-groovy-gscam" but it still says there's no such package. "sudo apt-get install ros-groovy-g<tab>" shows 14 packages, but no gscam. Neither does synaptic. Any clue what's going wrong ?

Can you confirm that you have the updated package URL ( deb precise main ) in your /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list ?

Ok, totally forgot to update that. After updating, it can install gscam with dependencies. And can you confirm that there is a GPG error on the URL because the signature cannot be verified ?

The key has also changed. Please run: wget -O - | sudo apt-key add -

After running wget, apt-get install ros-groovy-gscam gives the warning that gscam as well as its dependencies can not be authenticated. Is this ok or not ?

I haven't had this problem on my systems. Did you pipe the output from wget into apt-key add to add the new key?
