I am new with ROS, so I think this question is easy to answer, but I haven't found it in FAQ.

I am trying to download the kinect_camera package, from this site:

The problem is that the source address is not like all other packages I've seen. The source address is: bzr lp:cyphy or lp:cyphy

I usually type (to download a package): svn co <sourceaddress>

and this works with a normal address (eg. for a pcl package)

What should I do to download the kinect_camera package? I use Ubuntu.

Thank you in advanced, if the question was already answer please forgive me, I didn't found it.

Hi, There are different version controls like hg, svn, bzr etc. Bazaar is the version control you are talking about. The command for checking out from bzr is

bzr checkout <https://link> <local_directory_path>

you can google to know more about this version control.

Hope this helps, Karthik
