ROSberryPi For GoPiGo3: Install Pkgs or different Variant?

I'm attempting to create a ROS Kinetic installation on Raspbian-Stretch that has the packages needed for a GoPiGo3 node.

I followed ROSberryPiInstalling ROS Kinetic on the Raspberry Pi and chose the "recommended by the wiki" ROS-COMM variant. (The wiki states only the ROS-COMM and DESKTOP variants have been "tested in Kinetic".)

I followed ROS-GOPIGO3_NODE: INSTALLATION, but my ROS is missing the following packages:

  • geometry_msgs
  • rospy
  • sensor_msgs
  • nav_msgs
  • tf (listed in packages.xml but is deprecated by tf2)

Should I ??
- install only the missing packages,
- start over and install the "tested" DESKTOP variant, or
or start over and attempt one of the REP-131 (groovy variants?)
- install "ros-base (ros,ros_comm)", or
- install "robot(extends ros-base with a bunch of stacks)

I tried the "install only the missing packages" and have SUCCESS!

This is how I did it:

====== adding packages/stacks needed for GoPiGo3_Node

$ cd ~/ros_catkin_ws $ rosinstall_generator ros_comm geometry_msgs rospy sensor_msgs nav_msgs tf --rosdistro kinetic --deps --wet-only --tar >kinetic-custom_ros.rosinstall

$ wstool merge -t src kinetic-custom_ros.rosinstall Performing actions:

 Add new elements:   actionlib,  angles,  common_msgs/actionlib_msgs,

common_msgs/geometry_msgs, common_msgs/nav_msgs, common_msgs/sensor_msgs, geometry/tf, geometry2/tf2, geometry2/tf2_msgs, geometry2/tf2_py, geometry2/tf2_ros

Config changed, maybe you need run wstool update to update SCM entries. Overwriting /home/pi/ros_catkin_ws/src/.rosinstall

update complete.

$ wstool update -t src

$ rosdep install -y --from-paths src --ignore-src --rosdistro kinetic -r --os=debian:stretch

$ sudo ./src/catkin/bin/catkin_make_isolated --install -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release --install-space /opt/ros/kinetic -j2
