Hi,

I'm trying to install RoboEarth on my Ubuntu 10.10 and I'm following the steps at the wiki page. Somewhere along the line, I have to use the command rosinstall, but it doesn't work. When I try sudo apt-get install python-rosinstall , I get the following error:

E: Unable to locate package python-rosinstall.

If I try the command sudo pip install -U rosinstall, I get the message:

sudo: pip:command not found.

What should I do?

I'm a beginner, so any help is welcome! Thanks!

EDIT: After michikarg's help, I was able to run rosinstall but I'm still having problems with the installation process. Some of the dependencies were not found, even some that are already installed such as libqt4-dev.

Here is the log message (by the way, I'm using ROS Electric):

ROS Electric is not officially supported. If you really can't update to Fuerte, try Revision r2047:

roscd roboearth
svn up -r2047

I'm not sure but maybe there are no debian packages of python-rosinstall for Ubuntu 10.10 and Electric. I guess you are using ROS Electric?

As you already found out, you can use pip for installation as well. But therefore you will first have to install pip itself. You can do so by:

sudo apt-get install python-pip

A general note: You should use tags for all of your questions on ros answers so the right people get noticed and you will receive an answer faster.

Thanks, that helped me get pip running... I was trying "sudo apt-get install pip"!
