E: Unable to locate package ros-melodic-industrial-core

I'm trying to control an ABB IRB120 with ROS. For that matter, I want to install ROS-industrial.

I am following this tutorial but when executing "sudo apt-get install ros-melodic-industrial-core", the message "E: Unable to locate package ros-melodic-industrial-core" appears. It looks like the industrial core packages are not supported for ROS Melodic.

Will I have to install this package from a not-fully-supported source? or something like that? I am new to ROS. Any help is appreciated.

I'm using the ROS Melodic Morenia distribution with Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS.

Kind regards.

industrial_core (and all the packages in that repository) were released into Melodic and with the sync out are now available to install with apt on supported OS.

wow! those are great news! thank you for the answer. After doing some readings I have finally managed to get it going, working with the RViz and connecting to the RobotStudio environment.

It'll probably be easiest to just build it yourself. I just successfully built it in Melodic on Ubuntu 18.04.2 from the melodic development branch. Industrial Core Github
