Hi Can anyone tell me the best way to install the Gazebo dev trunk for use with ROS please?

Ideally I could leave the Debian package installed, so updates will work ok. Then just switch between the two when I load a simulation.


Update: I'm switching back to ROS Electric if that makes any difference.

Switching back to Electric is likely to break things.

What you want to do is install gazebo (trunk) into your ROS workspace, build it, and then make sure your ROS_PACKAGE_PATH is set up correctly, so that you find the version you built from source.

The link for the source download is here (bulleted list, not too far down). Take a look at the rosinstall and rosws tools if you aren't familiar with building from source.
