I'm working through this Gazebo tutorial, and I get to the point where we're told to do

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

However, apt-get comes back with "E: Unable to locate package ros-hydro-pr2-common". I'm running Indigo on Trusty, so I took a shot at

sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-pr2-common

with the same result. My ros-latest.list points at

deb trusty main

It would seem that pr2_common just isn't there. I was able to build pr2_common from source (after chasing down ivcon and convex_decomposition), but I'm still wondering why apt-get couldn't find this package. Makes me think I've got something goofed-up in my setup.

There's nothing wrong with your system; the PR2 packages haven't been released into Indigo yet. You'll have to install them from source.

You can check the build and release status on the Indigo Status Page

Thanks, Austin.
