I recently changes the os on my nexus 4 to Ubuntu touch and i tried installing ROS the traditional way onto the device. But everytime i try to install i keep getting errors saying that the package was not found or cannot be installed. I havent found much documentation on this topic. How would i be able to install ROS on the device ?. I need to install it on my robot to control the bot and carry out all the processing.

Please help

Have you been successful already? I am curious about the performance of ROS on Ubuntu Touch devices.

Anybody figured out a way to do this yet? I got a project coming up and we need to use a portable device capable of running ROS.

Any and all suggestions are welcomed. Thanks

I am not sure but I think that packages for Ubuntu touch are different from the packages for desktop computers having the standard Ubuntu. From this page it looks like ros precompiled packages are indeed only available for Desktop Ubuntu

If this is the case you should install ROS by your own by compiling from the source code. Here is how to do it
