I am trying to follow the install for kinetic for the raspberry pi 3. Its says if I have a raspberry pi 3 I can follow a easy method at:

But I do not have a dedicated terminal and need to ssh into the raspberry from my pc. The instructions assume that I have ubuntu-mate on the raspberry, as far as I know there is no way to ssh into ubuntu-mate without first going into its desktop.

Are these instructions incorrect ... should ignore the easy recommendation and just follow the body of the instructors that follow in ROSberryPi. These instructions seem to work somewhat but there are issues accessing some of the packages that I have been unable to resolve. I am using realVNC(vncviewer) to ssh in to pi.

I am using 'catkin build'

I will re-flash my sdcard with raspbian and go though the procedure again...but if anyone has some input please let me know.

Thank you for your time.

Comments . Look for "headless". If you use Raspbian you have to compile ROS. If you use Ubuntu Mate you can use the standard installation procedure. I don't know a way to activate SSH on a headless Ubuntu Mate.

ubuntu-mate does not support ssh from an initial install. ubuntu-mate requires a terminal for its desktop environment on initial boot.

If this is one of the problems, you can use the ssh terminal : ssh username@ip:port (with default port = 22)

On the Pi, I think you can use Ubuntu mate as well as any other debian based distribution.

I tried this with ubuntu-mate but can not get access. I believe this can not be done unless you set it up from the ubuntu-mate side which is does not help me.
