following the guide, sudo apt-get install ros-fuerte-pr2-desktop gives the following error:

$ sudo apt-get install ros-fuerte-pr2-desktop
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package ros-fuerte-pr2-desktop

Anyone know why it's not found?

Did you run 'sudo apt-get update' before trying to install ros-fuerte-pr2-desktop?

yeah, I installed ros-fuerte-desktop-full to get going... when I check my software list (in synaptic package manager), I see other pr2 related packages, but not desktop.

There are a few packages in the pr2-desktop variant which fail to build on oneiric. For now you will have to install the individual packages. The pr2 variants are listed in REP 108
