Quick question as I am a bit confused about the the image_transport package. Using: Indigo (_Compiled from source in embedded device_)

I needed image_transport package so I used image_common where image_trasport is part of. However image_common has only the default plugin image_raw. I need also the compressed and theora plugins as well.

I see there is again a repo ( ) that has all image_transport plugins.

Two main questions please:

  • Was it a bad idea to install image_common as it is missing the two other plug-ins? If yes, what is the recommended way? Which repo/package?
  • How can I install the "missing" plugins?

Remember I am compiling everything from source.

Many thanks! Athanasios

To answer my second question:

  • Install opencv in the embedded board
  • clone vision_opencv into the src (is needed for compressed and theora)
  • clone image_transport_plugins

Finally compile everything :)
