I have ROS groovy running on my machine. I need to get a Hokuyo urg-04lx work there. Can I install urg_node on Groovy or do I have to change my ROS distribution?

According to the wiki it is supported from Groovy through Kinetic. To install the source, you can clone the repo, checkout the groovy-devel branch and then compile it. I don't believe that you can use apt to install as this is quite old (the most recent commit for the groovy-devel branch was 5 years ago).

Thank you Jayess, But as you see there is no link for groovy install. Should I try installing all the dependencies?

The link was there, you just have to click on any other tab besides Groovy.

Thanks a lot Jayess, I downloaded the urg_node-groovy-devel package. However, when I copied it into my catkin_ws/src folder and tried to compile it, I got the following errors:

CMake Error at /opt/ros/groovy/share/catkin/cmake/catkinConfig.cmake:75 (find_package): Could not find a configuration file for package urg_c.

Set urg_c_DIR to the directory containing a CMake configuration file for urg_c. The file will have one of the following names:

urg_cConfig.cmake
urg_c-config.cmake

Call Stack (most recent call first): urg_node-groovy-devel/CMakeLists.txt:7 (find_package)

CMake Error at /opt/ros/groovy/share/catkin/cmake/catkinConfig.cmake:75 (find_package): Could not find a configuration file for package laser_proc.

Set laser_proc_DIR to the directory containing a CMake configuration file for laser_proc. The file will have one of the following names:

laser_procConfig.cmake
laser_proc-config.cmake

Call Stack (most recent call first): urg_node-groovy-devel/CMakeLists.txt:7 (find_package)

-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred! Invoking "cmake" failed

Could you please tell me what is going wrong? And How can I solve this?

You should create a new question instead of using an answer to ask a question. It'll help your question get more notice and keep questions separate and therefore make the site more useful.
