I wish to confirm if the steps I am going to follow to install this package: viso2_ros is right. I am working on ROS Indigo. Here is my plan:

  1. Switch to catkin workspace and then to the src folder
  2. Run git clone command as below:
git clone -b indigo-devel

I am a bit confused here. Should I use the indigo-devel branch in the command or should I go with indigo branch?

3.Switch to catkin_ws and run catkin_make

Is this procedure right? Is this what is called building/compiling from source?

I have found out that this is in fact right. The difference between indigo and indigo-devel branch is that the former has been created and tested long ago; the latter may still be under development, and is newer.
