I have Linux installed on my OMEN-HP Laptop with ROS Melodic. I would like to know if it's possible to install ROS2 without it interfering with ROS

Would these questions be duplicates: #q286978, #q326445 and #q322987?

If they are, and your question has been answered -- as #q350544 seems to suggest -- please close your question as a duplicate.

Yes, you can, if you're using them independently just make sure to source the right version.


source /opt/ros/dashing/setup.bash


source /opt/ros/<ros_distro>/setup.bash

If you'd like to communicate between ROS1 and ROS2 this is the dedicated documentation: Bridge communication between ROS 1 and ROS 2
