I am trying to install Baxter on ROS groovy from catkin workspace where the SDK resides, and use wstool to install and update. This is waht i am supposed to do:-

    $ cd ~/ros_ws/src
    $ git clone
    $ cd baxter_simulator
    $ git checkout early_interface_dev
    $ cd ..
    $ wstool init # need to do this only if this is a new workspace where this command was not executed before.
    $ wstool merge baxter_simulator/baxter_simulator.rosinstall
    $ wstool update

But after i type in <git checkout="" early_interface_dev=""> i get this error message. please explain the reason and solution.

sa@svs-FX6860:~/catkin_ws/src/baxter_simulator$ git checkout early_interface_dev
error: pathspec 'early_interface_dev' did not match any file(s) known to git.

That error usually means that the branch you're trying to check out doesn't exist.

Since the repository in question doesn't exist or isn't public, you should probably contact Rethink directly for further support.

I just skipped that error-ridden step and proceeded with other steps and things worked out. I have not yet rationalised why it should be so. Still things worked out!
