I've been following instructions at to install Fuerte on Oneiric. The final step, apt-install fails, because the package is not found:

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

I re-ran apt-get update multiple times. No luck.

Here for quick reference the instructions at the above site:

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb oneiric main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list'
wget -O - | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update
echo "hddtemp hddtemp/daemon boolean false" | sudo debconf-set-selections
sudo apt-get install

Anything additional I can/must do?

Do you see "ros-fuerte-pr2-desktop" listed in Synaptic?

No, neither apt-cache search nor Synaptic see ros-fuerte-pr2-desktop. Both do list ros-fuerte-desktop and ros-fuerte-desktop-full. And I did install the latter successfully. I ros-fuerte-pr2-controllers. But no pr2-desktop for fuerte

Form here: it looks like this package is only being built for Lucid for some reason. (Compared to where there are debs for all versions)
