I like to use tf2 transformations, but those headers are not on my system. I used to sudo apt-get install ros-fuerte-desktop-full ros-fuerte-pr2-desktop ros-fuerte-pr2-base to install ros. But still all I find are the normal tf transformation headers and "tf2_ros/transform_broadcaster.h" which does not look to be the right one.

System: ubuntu 12.04 32bit, ROS: fuerte via (23.Aug.2012)

Any ideas? I don not want to compile ros by hand so did I miss any package



PS.: Thanks for the hint but geometry_experimental is installed. Have a look at the following bash history:

# ros-fuerte-geometry-experimental is already installed
max@rudi:/opt/ros/fuerte$ sudo apt-get install ros-fuerte-geometry-experimental

Do you have geometry_experimental installed?

sudo apt-get install ros-fuerte-geometry-experimental

Edit: Why do you think tf2_ros/transform_broadcaster.h is not what you are looking for? As I understand it, the tf2 package (now) contains the basic alghorithms and classes while the tf2_ros package contains the ros specific parts, including the listener. Did you try it out?

Thanks for the hint but it did not work, ros-fuerte-geometry-experimental is already installed. As prove I extended my question.
