Hi, I am trying to experiment on code. Its developed for cturtle. Will that be compatible with electric? Any unstable version available on ros-electric? Even the existing package is not getting downloaded. I get the following error when i do the rosinstall of the config file given in the link.

ERROR: Failed to install tree '/workspace/karthik/RRC/ros_steder11icra/steder11icra/steder11icra_ros/ros'
 Checkout of -r10573 version  into /workspace/karthik/RRC/ros_steder11icra/steder11icra/steder11icra_ros/ros failed.

Thanks, Karthik

From the paper's wiki page, section 5:

It seems unlikely that you'll be able to get it running with Electric or Unstable on a current version of Ubuntu. Your best bet it to do as the wiki page suggests and use the NARF implementation in PCL.

That package does not appear to have been maintained.

It seems to have a lot of dependencies, and may be hard to bring up to date.
