Dear All. when I use ubuntu 11.04 or 10.04 to install ros pr2 electric package, I try to use the psql database with the following link: But unfortunately, willow can not log in psql. 1. sudo apt-get install postgresql 2. psql 3. CREATE ROLE willow LOGIN CREATEDB CREATEROLE PASSWORD 'willow'; 4.add the following into pg_hba.conf # willow user can connect locally with password local all willow md5 5. restart computer 6. psql --username willow --password --dbname postgres The result is that:

root@ubuntu:~# psql --username willow --password --dbname postgres Password for user willow: psql: FATAL: Ident authentication failed for user "willow"

Whether I use postgres or other os user to log in ubuntu, the result is the same. It seems that I did not create the willow user. What I do is just start the server use psql or psql --username postgres Then I create the user and the \q.
So I didnot know how to solve this problem. OR where can I get a good demo instruction to run the grasp and place demo on ubuntu 11.04 0r 10.04. The problem is how to setup the database. Best regards. Zhenli

Answer by myself: Though it does not work, but just forward your step, you can also get what you want to use the database.
