hello, I'm using ros2 Foxy on Windows 10, and I would like tu use the Doosan Drivers. My problem is that Doosan wants me to make this commande : "sudo apt-get install ros-foxy-control-msgs ros-foxy-realtime-tools ros-foxy-xacro ros-foxy-joint-state-publisher-gui"; so i suppose the equivalent would be : "choco install ros-foxy-control-msgs ros-foxy-realtime-tools ros-foxy-xacro ros-foxy-joint-state-publisher-gui" but the problem is when i do this on windows"choco search ros-foxy", there is only one package, the ros-foxy-desktop .Is there any solution? Like getting this packages from linux to windows through a usb key? or other way than choco to importe packages on widows?

Building from Source for ROS2 on Windows: Reference tutorial:

Create workspace, source and build

md \dev\ros2_example_ws\src

cd \dev\ros2_example_ws

git clone <repo-address>

colcon build --symlink-install --merge-install

To source environment back:

call install\setup.bat

Warning: Not everything will compile as some libraries were written for Linux environment but if you run into those you can raise another question.
