I am running through the tutorial .

I get problems while downloading the package libconsole-bridge-dev (section 2.2 of )

I first have to run

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys 9165938D90FDDD2E

to get through "apt-get source -b console-bridge" command (this isn't listed in the tutorial)

and then when I run:

sudo dpkg -i libconsole-bridge0.2_*.deb libconsole-bridge-dev_*.deb

i get the error:

dpkg: error processing libconsole-bridge0.2_*.deb (--install):
 cannot access archive: No such file or directory
(Reading database ... 41269 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to replace libconsole-bridge-dev:i386 0.2.5-2.1 (using libconsole-bridge-dev_0.2.5-2.1_i386.deb) ...
Unpacking replacement libconsole-bridge-dev:i386 ...
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of libconsole-bridge-dev:i386:
 libconsole-bridge-dev:i386 depends on libconsole-bridge0.2v5 (= 0.2.5-2.1); however:
  Package libconsole-bridge0.2v5 is not installed.

dpkg: error processing libconsole-bridge-dev:i386 (--install):
 dependency problems - leaving unconfigured

I have no idea what I am doing wrong. I have completely started over by reflashing the intel edison (ubilinux) a couple of times now and still not being successful in installing ros indigo on the intel edison.

I would really appreciate any help on this matter


also, when i run sudo apt-get -f install and uninstall libconsole-bridge-dev and then try to run:

sudo dpkg -i libconsole-bridge0.2_.deb libconsole-bridge-dev_.deb

I end up with this error message:

dpkg: error processing libconsole-bridge0.2_*.deb (--install):
 cannot access archive: No such file or directory
dpkg: error processing libconsole-bridge-dev_*.deb (--install):
 cannot access archive: No such file or directory

Please format console copy/pastes with the Preformatted text button, otherwise it can be rather hard to read. It's the one with 101010 on it.

I ran these commands

cd ~/ros_catkin_ws/external_src
sudo apt-get install libboost-system-dev libboost-thread-dev
git clone
cd console_bridge
cmake .
sudo checkinstall make install

than ran sudo ./src/catkin/bin/catkin_make_isolated --install -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release --install-space /opt/ros/indigo finally got ros to install.

Note: the insctructions listed here didnt work for me.
