I'm trying to install electric pr2 desktop on ubuntu maverick (10.10) following the instructions at, which tells me to install the package ros-electric-pr2-desktop, only apt tells me that package doesn't exist. Why not?

I believe I have apt sources setup ok, using 'deb maverick main' and can see plenty of of other ros-electric packages, just not the desktop one, maverick is missing.

This is similar to question ubuntu-install-of-electric-pr2-desktop, except that question and answer is for Oneric.

pr2-desktop is not available on Maverick as some of the required packages do not build on that platform. As Maverick is due to be EOL in a month, it is unlikely this will be fixed. You will need to update to Natty or Oneiric if you wish to use the full suite, or install pr2 stacks individually.
