I want to install moveit! on ROS-kinetic. But on moveit!, installation is available till indigo only.

I have already installed ROS-kinetic.

So, should i uninstall kinetic and install indigo?

I also tried to uninstall kinetic version, but the components are there in folder. Please suggest me way to do it.

Regards, Ankita Kadam

MoveIt is indeed still not released for Kinetic. It seems that the cause of this delay is a massive change to a use a single unified Git repository for all MoveIt sub-projects.

See for details and for the experimental unified repo.

So you can either try to build MoveIt for Kinetic from its sources, or indeed downgrade to either Jade or Indigo.

I think the main reason is actually that some of the dependencies (Octomap, FCL and some msgs) have either not been released on Xenial, or in their current released form are not compatible with MoveIt. See ros-planning/moveit_ros#695 fi.

That's a valid comment @Dinesh. I left my thoughts at

i've never suggested we delay the moveit kinetic release for the repo merge, but if they could coincide that would be nice

Currently i downgraded to indigo as currently this is in learning phase for me. I will shift to Kinetic once it is released for Moveit!
