I've been trying to use the URG-04LK-UG01 with ROS melodic and can't seem how to figure out how to install the urg_node package in conversion for melodic. Any suggestions on what to do? Packages for urg_node and hokuyo_node don't get installed as they are past packages of ROS. Any help on using the Lidar with ROS melodic would help!

urg_node seems to have been released into Melodic (see urg_node and status_page/ros_melodic_default.html?q=urg).

If apt is not working for you, perhaps that would be something to solve.

@gvdhoorn I've updated apt, and it tells me that it is unable to locate the package when trying to install urg_node. I'm not sure if I'm trying to install the right package name however there's been no luck.

What command are you using? Should be sudo apt-get install ros-melodic-urg-node

@cxexcision: you're most likely using an incorrect command. The correct one would be what @allenh1 shows.

if you can update your question with the command and output of apt we can be sure.

I think my issue is using the proper repository to install urg-node from, that is the command I've used trying to install it.

Then please tell us how you installed ROS, which platform this is, CPU arch, what installation instructions you followed, what the contents of /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list is and other details.

Which arch? What is the contents of the file? Which tutorial? Please add that to your original question.
