I tried to install KnowRob package ( but got some errors. First I check the two repositories. git clone svn co

everything was fine

than using tried to satisfy the system dependences rosdep satisfy knowrob

Got the error. rosdep: command not found

After that tried to do sudo apt-get install [...] # only if something is missing

And got lots error massages like this

Usually, it's good practice to fix the first error first, in this case the "rosdep: command not found". Google or the ROS wiki search will give you instructions how to install rosdep (e.g.

The line "sudo apt-get install [...] # only if something is missing" was not intended to be typed in literally, but means that you should install those packages that rosdep reported as missing.
