Installation of ROS on Ubuntu 15.10

Hi everybody,

I've just installed a fresh version of Ubuntu 15.10 "Wily Werewolf" on my VMWare Player. I want to install the latest version of ROS (which is "Jade Turtle" I assume). When going through the installation tutorial I've noticed already on step 1.2 the first problem.

ROS Jade ONLY supports Trusty (14.04), Utopic (14.10) and Vivid (15.04) for debian packages.

As I am running 15.10, I assume, that ROS Jade doesn't support debian packages on my special system. As I am not experienced with Ubuntu, I can only guess that the next steps of the tutorial won't for me as this is a pretty basic requirement for the system.

Does anyone has a easier-to-understand installing guide for me (I know that the tutorial I mentioned above is really simple already)?

Thanks in advance! Che.

I managed to build ROS jade on Ubuntu Willy compiling from sources. Until the moment It works nice:

I installed many packages, among them: navigation rviz gmapping hector_slam rqt

rosinstall_generator gmapping hector_slam navigation rviz rqt ros_comm --rosdistro jade --deps --wet-only --exclude roslisp --tar > my_application.rosinstall

The dependencies I had to install were:

sudo apt-get install libtinyxml-dev lz4 liblz4-dev BZip2 libz2-dev libbz2-dev liburdf-dom-headers-dev libgtest-dev libsdl-image1.2-dev liburdfdom-dev libogre1.8-dev libassimp-dev python-netifaces

Download it

wstool init -j10 src my_application.rosinstall

Compile it

./src/catkin/bin/catkin_make_isolated --devel devel_isolated --devel-space devel_isolated -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release

Install it

./src/catkin/bin/catkin_make_isolated --devel devel_isolated --devel-space devel_isolated -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release --install
