Hello I'm Carlos,

I have a lot of troubles in my ROS installation in OSX.

In first place, I had OSX 'EL CAPITAN'. But I had a error in the rosdep step, the error was a conflict with qt4 and qt5. Because of this error I had format my Macbook Air, I thought that the error was produced because I had got a lot of apps and libraries in my computer, and now I have OSX 'SIERRA', but I had the problem again.

Then I saw this post:

And I did the rosdep with the --skip-keys argument.

rosdep install --from-paths src --ignore-src --rosdistro kinetic -y --skip-keys "libqt5-core libqt5-gui libqt5-opengl libqt5-opengl-dev libqt5-widgets qt5-qmake qtbase5-dev"

Now I solved this error but I have another after with ogre. If I put ogre in --skip-keys then appears other many errors... The error output is:

executing command [brew install ogre] Error: No available formula with the name "ogre" ==> Searching for similarly named formulae... This similarly named formula was found: progress ✔ To install it, run: brew install progress ✔ ==> Searching taps... These formulae were found in taps: homebrew/nginx/upload-progress-nginx-module homebrew/php/php55-uploadprogress homebrew/php/php53-uploadprogress homebrew/php/php56-uploadprogress homebrew/php/php54-uploadprogress Caskroom/cask/progressive-downloader To install one of them, run (for example): brew install homebrew/nginx/upload-progress-nginx-module ERROR: the following rosdeps failed to install homebrew: command [brew install ogre] failed How Could I solve this?

Thank you. Regards.

I believe that you need to add the taps from OSRF to your Homebrew:

From ROS Wiki:

$ brew tap ros/deps
$ brew tap osrf/simulation   # Gazebo, sdformat, and ogre
$ brew tap homebrew/versions # VTK5
$ brew tap homebrew/science  # others
