I am trying to run agvs_complete package on ubuntumate 16.04 raspberry pi 3 model. I am using ROS kinetic version. The agvs_complete package is written for hydro version. I simply clone it and then I tried to use it using roslaunch file of gmapping. Then it is showing as following error. I don't know how to make compatible hydro packages to kinetic? Is there any way to solve it? There a lot of launch files in agvs_complete package which are written for hydro and I am trying to run for kinetic. Please help me, it urgent. I should meet my deadline.

 * /rosdistro: kinetic
 * /rosversion: 1.12.6

    slam_gmapping (gmapping/slam_gmapping)


core service [/rosout] found

Please tell us what you are actually trying to do, which version of ROS this is, how you installed things (especially gmapping), etc. Right now this is just a plain dump of your error message, and we cannot help you.

Are you sure the gmapping package is installed? Do you see it in the list when you type "rospack list"? If not you can install it using "sudo apt install ros-kinetic-gmapping".
