Hi Sir, I want to install Mesa Imaging SwissRanger (4500) software in ros. I downloaded the library (ibmesasr-dev-1.0.14-653.amd64.deb) for linux. I followed the tutorial (Download and install swissranger_camera) to install the library,but I can not install it in ros. Do we have any special code for installing it in ros? Should I determine the path of my workspace to installing the library? Thanks, Abbas

Hi, Thank you for the comment.I already found this tutorial and I followed it, but at the first step I do not know how can I install the library. I mean I downloaded it and it has a install button and I installed it. But when I used (rosmake swissranger_camera) it gives me an error .

So first, how can I install the library? and second should I determine a path to install it (determine my workspace as a path)?

Thank you for your help. Sorry, I am new in ros. Do we have a command to install the library (libmesasr-dev-1.0.14-653.i386.deb) in ros? Thanks

AFAIK , I don't think there's a binary package for it, you need to install from source. Try to export the path !
