I've installed ROS melodic on a Google Colab server.

When I try to execute catkin_make (or the python3 alternative command) I get the following error: /bin/bash: catkin_make: command not found

The setup.bash file is sourced and ~/.bashrc was edited to accomodate automatic sourcing.

Anybody got a clue how to solve this?

The colab server has the following system: No LSB modules are available. Distributor ID: Ubuntu Description: Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS Release: 18.04 Codename: bionic

Hello. I'm trying to do the same as you did: run ROS in Colab. Did you get any progress? If so, could you share maybe your notebook or any tips? Thanks!
