sorry for my bad english.

im trying to get this tutorial: ANTDROID to work on my raspberry pi.

i followed the instructiones and it crashes istalling cv_bridge

also this tutorial: ROS on Raspberry Pi

and this tutorial: ROS on Debian

crashes everytime when i paste "vision_opencv" in "rosinstall_generator ros_comm --rosdistro indigo --deps --wet-only --exclude roslisp --tar > indigo-ros_comm-wet.rosinstall"

now im working on it about 3 weeks at any free minute i have. imgoing crazy.

i tied all commands and instructions abaud openCV, CV_Bridge and so on from the internet i found

it installs 73 packages from 101 packages and then crashes...

libconsole-bridge-dev and liblz4-dev are installed

i have tried a original rpi wheezy image and a image with preinstalled basic ros_comm

with the preinstalled ros image i can do: rosinstall_generator ros_comm --rosdistro indigo --deps --wet-only --exclude roslisp --tar > indigo-ros_comm-wet.rosinstall

and 48 from 48 operacion work perfectly

i tried tru ssh connection on windows / ubundtu and also with mouse and keyboard direct on the rpi

please, please give me a little step by step instruction to get this error with cv_bridge to work

here is the error text i get:

Wheezy has boost libraries 1.49, endian library is from version 1.58.

Working solution

use only if you are interfacing computers with little endian operating systems.

in file ~/ros_catkin_ws/src/vision_opencv/cv_bridge/src/cv_bridge.cpp make follow changes:


//#include "boost/endian/conversion.hpp"


//if ((boost::endian::order::native == boost::endian::order::big && source.is_bigendian) ||
//    (boost::endian::order::native == boost::endian::order::little && !source.is_bigendian) ||
//    byte_depth == 1)
    return mat;


ros_image.is_bigendian = 0;//(boost::endian::order::native == boost::endian::order::big);

partially comment and change:

if ((!encoding.empty() && source.encoding != encoding))// || (source.is_bigendian &&
    //(boost::endian::order::native != boost::endian::order::big)))
return toCvCopy(source, encoding);

Thanks Mikisoft!

installation of cv_bridge was working for the first time! but now other packages like diagnostic_aggregates wont work and crashes with boost errors. now i try a clean wheezy installation and try to fist of all installing libboost 1.59

here is what i try to do:

my setup: raspberry pi 2 b v 1.1 32gb sdcard raspbian wheezy 2015-05-05-0

i followed these instructiones:

First boot on your raspberry

Once you are connecting to your raspberry you must prepare it.

$ sudo raspi-config You could:

Expand filesystem. Change your password. Set up language and regional settion

ROS indigo

Installing ROS in raspbian


Setup ROS Repositories

$ sudo sh -c 'echo "deb wheezy main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list' $ wget -O - | sudo apt-key add -

Now, make sure your Debian package index is up-to-date:

$ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get upgrade

Install bootstrap dependencies

$ sudo apt-get install python-setuptools $ sudo easy_install pip $ sudo pip install -U rosdep rosinstall_generator wstool rosinstall

Initializing rosdep

$ sudo rosdep init $ rosdep update

Create a catkin Workspace

In order to build the core packages, you will need a catkin workspace. Create one now:

$ mkdir ~/ros_catkin_ws $ cd ~/ros_catkin_ws

$ rosinstall_generator ros_comm diagnostics joystick_drivers robot_upstart bond_core dynamic_reconfigure nodelet_core rosserial class_loader image_common vision_opencv image_transport_plugins --rosdistro indigo --deps --wet-only --exclude roslisp --tar > indigo-antdroid-wet.rosinstall $ wstool init -j8 src indigo-antdroid-wet.rosinstall

Dependencies not available in the Raspbian stable branch

We need install libconsole-bridge-dev and liblz4-dev for Ros_Comm: These packages can be built from source in a new directory (Also install checkinstall and cmake):

$ mkdir ~/ros_catkin_ws/external_src $ sudo apt-get install checkinstall cmake $ sudo sh -c 'echo "deb-src testing main contrib non-free rpi" >> /etc/apt/sources.list' $ sudo apt-get update libconsole-bridge-dev:

$ cd ~/ros_catkin_ws/external_src $ sudo apt-get build-dep console-bridge $ apt-get source -b console-bridge $ sudo dpkg -i libconsole-bridge0.2.deb libconsole-bridge-dev_.deb

liblz4-dev: Install with the following: Install with the following:

$ cd ~/ros_catkin_ws/external_src $ wget $ wget $ sudo dpkg -i liblz4-1_0.0~r122-2_armhf.deb liblz4-dev_0.0~r122-2_armhf.deb

Resolving Dependencies with rosdep

The remaining dependencies should be resolved by running rosdep:

$ cd ~/ros_catkin_ws $ rosdep install --from-paths src --ignore-src --rosdistro indigo -y -r --os=debian:wheezy

Invoke catkin_make_isolated:

$ sudo ./src/catkin/bin/catkin_make_isolated --install -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release --install-space /opt/ros

Now ROS should be installed! Remember to source the new installation:

$ echo 'source /opt/ros/indigo/setup.bash' >> ~/.bashrc Then you must reboot or execute:

$ source /opt/ros/indigo/setup.bash

thanks Mikisoft.

clean wheezy install and first install libboost 1.59 cant get it to work.

i try clean install, then follow this tutorial: AntDroid

and then try your "new"solution withoud your "first" solution, right?

yes, the first solution is dead-end. with second solution is everithing OK.
