I want install the Ueye package to ROS the Internet i found instructions to do this with Indigo(recommended). But at the moment i'm not allowed to update to Indigo, that's why i want to find a way to do this with Hydro and Ubuntu 12.04 instead of 14.04. Is it possible? this is the command for Indigo: sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-ueye Would this work for Hydro? : sudo apt-get install ros-hydro-ueye ? At the moment i don't have the opportunity to try, that's why i'm asking

Note that there are multiple ROS driver packages for UEYE camera. A few years ago I raised this and IMO these packages should be ideally consolidated into a single package (as recommended here) to get the best of both/all worlds, but that hasn't happened so far. AFAIK, both ueye_cam and ueye packages are well-maintained.

UEye ros package is included in Hydro so YES: . Try to check the official Wiki before asking ;) You will also need to install the UEye drivers
