Hello, I am trying to install the rosaria package trough rosdep but when I run the command rosdep install rosaria along this tutorial this is what I obtain :

robotics@robotics-MacBookAir:~/catkin_ws/src$ rosdep install rosaria
Executing script below with cwd=/tmp
if test "x`dpkg-query -W -f='${Package} ${Status} ${Version}\n' libaria-sourcedep`" != 'xlibaria-sourcedep install ok installed 2.8.0-1'; then
 echo "libaria-sourcedep not installed"
  exit 1
  exit 0


#All required rosdeps installed successfully

And then if I try to run: rosrun rosaria RosAria, nothing happen and it crashes.


This is what I obtain when I run :

roscd && cd ../src
cd ..

git clone
robotics@robotics-MacBookAir:~/catkin_ws/src$ roscd && cd ../src
robotics@robotics-MacBookAir:~/catkin_ws/src$ git clone
fatal: destination path 'rosaria' already exists and is not an empty directory.

Do you have an idea about what would be the cause of this problem?

That's not actually installing ROSAria. You need to compile the source. Run the following.

$ roscd && cd ../src
$ git
$ cd ../ && catkin_make

But, as a side note, you can use p2os to work with Pioneer robots by using apt-get.

sudo apt-get install ros-jade-p2os-*

Thank you for the reply, I've already try git clone . then catkin_make but when I do rosrun rosaria RosAria nothing at all happens. I wonder it was because of rosdep.

I also tried sudo apt-get install ros-jade-p2os-*, it seems working but I get errors. I need to fix that but I would prefer working with RosAria since I use to.

Could you update your question with the output of the relevant commands? I also might suggest you run source ~/catkin_ws/devel/setup.bash and try ROSAria again. But if you're getting errors with p2os, please let me know, as I'm the p2os maintainer.

I have already source after catkin_make, in that case it does not find the package but here, it finds it but nothing about even that it cannot find the master. For p2os I have already fix it, but I am wondering if I need p2os_dashboard package because it does not exist.

You do not need p2os_dashboard. I'm actually planning to completely redo that program. But it is not anywhere close to a necessity. Unfortunately, I cannot help much with ROSAria.
