I have attempted to follow the directions in the imu_node tutorial and step 1.1 (compiling) appears to be broken. I am running ROS electric on Ubuntu 10.10.

The following command:

rosdep install microstrain_3dmgx2_imu

returns the following error:

Warning: could not identify ['microstrain_3dmgx2_imu'] as a package

Any assistance is appreciated.

In ubuntu you can install it from apt: sudo apt-get install ros-electric-imu-drivers, then roscd microstrain_3dmgx2_imu, and you can omit rosdep and rosmake steps, as everything is already built. You should be able to rosrun the imu_node directly.

Thanks Enrique! That worked perfectly.
