Dear All. Who can tell me how to install How to install roboearth on ubuntu 12.04 ros fuerte 64 bit. Following website: I can not finish the installation.

Step 1.

rosinstall ~/ros /opt/ros/fuerte ''

No problem.

Step 2:

sudo apt-get install ros-fuerte-ias-common ros-fuerte-perception-pcl-addons ros-fuerte-simulator-gazebo ros-fuerte-vision-opencv ros-fuerte-octomap-mapping ros-fuerte-client-rosjava-jni.

but there is not a package named ros-fuerte-perception-pcl-addons. So I cannot finish

step 3:

rosmake roboearth

Then I try to download and install from svn. There are two errors.

One is it need pcl_visualization

While I compile pcl_visualization it said it need eigen.

I think there is an easy way for us to install and use roboearth.

We recently upgraded it to be compatible to ROS Fuerte, so you might try it again.

I am running Ubuntu 11.10 with ROS Fuerte and I tried these same steps right now and I am having the same problem. Could it be that the rosinstall file is pulling from a branch, so that I am not getting the recent upgrade? Or is it possible that the fuerte updates aren't making it to 11.10?

I cannot reproduce that problem, the stack does not depend on ros-fuerte-perception-pcl-addons. Please open a new issue and describe your problem in detail.
