Good Morning, I'm kind of new with ROS, and I'm trying to compile rgbdslam on my ROS fuerte following this guide:

here's the link

While running "rosdep install rgbdslam_freiburg" I get an error telling me "missing resource rgbdslam". I read somewhere that rgbdslam is still not supported on fuerte and I was wondering if there is any solution to this...can someone help me? Or can someone tell me when fuerte will be supported?

I'm guessing you skipped a step somewhere, e.g. not working in a directory in your ROS_PACKAGE_PATH. Could you edit your answer to include more detail of what you exactly did.

It seems that octomap_server can not be resolved automatically by rosdep install. To manually install octomap_server execute the following command: sudo apt-get install ros-DISTRO-octomap-mapping (where DISTRO is your ROS distribution, i.e. fuerte). After octomap is installed, run rosdep install again to resolve the other dependencies.

Unfortunately, there seems to be no rule for ros-fuerte-octomap-mapping, to make it rosdep-able

You need to have ROS_DISTRO=fuerte set to resolve a ROS package as fuerte.

I am getting the issue as well followed BOTH - .....GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRwww.rosGRRRRRrg wiki GRRRRRrgbdslam AND - grrrrrrrrROS Tutorials InstallingandConfiguringROSEnvironment

I have reinstalled ubuntu and ros THRRE TIMES HERE....

I do - rosws init ~/fuerte_workspace /opt/ros/fuerte sudo apt-get install python-rosinstall svn co htGRRRRRRRRRRtp:/GRRRRRRR/ rosws set ~/fuerte_workspace/rgbdslam_freiburg source ~/fuerte_workspace/setup.bash roscd rgbdslam gets me to - ~/groovy_workspace/rgbdslam_freiburg/rgbdslam$

rosdep update gets me -

rosdep update reading in sources list data from /etc/ros/rosdep/sources.list.d Hit htGRRRRRRRtps:// Hit htGRRRRRRRtps:// Hit htGRRRRRRRtps:// Hit htGRRRRRRRtps:// Hit htGRRRRRRRtps:// Hit htGRRRRRRRtps:// Hit htGRRRRRRRtps:// updated cache in /home/nehock/.ros/rosdep/sources.cache

rosdep install rgbdslam_freiburg gets me -

ERROR: the following packages/stacks could not have their rosdep keys resolved to system dependencies: rgbdslam: Missing resource octomap_server ROS path [0]=/opt/ros/groovy/share/ros ROS path [1]=/home/nehock/groovy_workspace/rgbdslam_freiburg ROS path [2]=/home/nehock/fuerte_workspace/rgbdslam_freiburg ROS path [3]=/opt/ros/groovy/share ROS path [4]=/opt/ros/groovy/stacks

I know better than proceed cause I have fresh installed three times and getting same results - I am using groovy right now ( which ain't turning out so grrovy ) and also tried twice with fuerte....I am NOT using catskin crap because the tutorial was written for fuerte and rosbuild and who knows how to create the workspace using the two tutorials...

Anyway any help would be appreciated here as well....

Please don't post a question as an answer in another thread - make a new thread. And please post a legible question. I wouldn't read it in the form above.
