Hi guys, I tried to install ros Kinect desktop on my raspi. Everything went ok but I got this "Unable to locate package ros-kinetic-opencv3" prompt when adding the dependencies.

Any ideas?

Did you runsudo apt-get update before trying to install ROS?

Yea. All other dependencies can be added normally. Only ros-kinetic-opencv3 package pops error

Have you added ros packages to your sources.list file?

Also have a look at installation of ROS by source here on rpi. Another way to do it is to install opencv by yourself. OpenCV doesn't depend on ROS so your code will work.
