Hi I was able to install/make it successful and run all its nodes except re_comm i get the following error
usr1@CrevaviWS2:~$ rosrun re_comm run find: `/jre/lib/': No such file or directory Cannot find libjsig ... maybe you need to set JAVA_HOME?

I had the exact same issue. I did the following to get it to work.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ferramroberto/java

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin sun-java6-fonts

Hit TAB to get to Ok prompt. Ok to next screen as well.

When done, type java -version to see that it is installed You should be able to cd to the following path /usr/lib/jvm/default-java/jre/lib

If that path exists then do the following. cd to /etc sudo vi bash.bashrc

go to the end of the follow, add the following, save and exit

JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/default-java export JAVA_HOME PATH=$PATH:$JAVA_HOME/bin export PATH

once you exit, confirm new JAVA_HOME is set by typing echo $JAVA_HOME If the path shows up, you are done.

In a new terminal run rosrun re_comm run

the first command sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ferramroberto/java

Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/add-apt-repository", line 88, in <module> ppa_info = get_ppa_info_from_lp(user, ppa_name) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/softwareproperties/", line
