I'm just trying to install hydro to the PR2. When I type sudo apt-get install ros-hydro-pr2-desktop I have the following error:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package ros-hydro-pr2-desktop

It's not able to locate the package. As explained in http://wiki.ros.org/Robots/PR2/hydro , the package source deb http://packages.ros.org/ros/ubuntu precise main is one of my source.d files, nonetheless it doesn't detect the package. Any ideas???

I recently apt-got it from http://packages.ros.org/ros/ubuntu . Could you retry? Check this http://packages.ros.org/ros/ubuntu/po... to see if you are also able to see the debs.

Siligon,

this will be available soon as all of the pr2-metapackages are building in the shadow-fixed repo. Give it another month or two, and the PR2 will be fully available in Hydro.

Thank you for the answer, I haven't been working with the robot in a long time. Some people in the lab are working right now with it. I just posted another question.

To answer your edited comment:

It doesn't look like it is in public repos yet. The link to add to your sources list is:

deb http://packages.ros.org/ros-shadow-fixed/ubuntu/ precise main

and then

sudo apt-get update

and

sudo apt-get install ros-hydro-pr2-desktop

the shadow-fixed repository is frequently broken. Unless you're a package maintainer and you're trying to test packages before they're available to the general community, I don't recommend it. Use at your own risk.

What parts are supported and what can I try? Thanks ;)

Hi Silgon, you can check by looking at the ros-groovy-pr2- autocomplete output from the package manager. Whatever is there is what is not supported yet. To find what is available in hydro, type sudo apt-get install ros-hydro-pr2- and press tab. It'll give you a list of all available hydro packages for pr2.
