Hi everyone,

I'm using Qt creator IDE for prohramming with ROS. Although Qt creator only "supports" C++ for ROS it should be possible to build python programs by adding the necessary dependencies in the package.xml and the CMakeLists.txt. Right? However, when i build any package that was created using the IDE, python programs are not compiled

Any thoughts?

Thank you

Ubuntu 14 indigo

I have developed GUI to control A R Drone 2.0 using PyQT. You can check this link

You can use as example this rqt application. It implements the GUI using python that you compile in your workspace. I modified this one and it works great for me.

Not quite what I'm looking for. My question is about IDE's. See [ ]
