re_comm build error in roboearth installation (ROS Fuerte + Ubuntu 12.04)

asked 2013-01-08 10:44:03 -0600

Hi everyone,

I am trying to install RoboEarth within ROS Fuerte in Ubuntu 12.04. I looked over all answers concerning roboearth installation errors but found nothing like this. My installation fails when building the last package, namely re_comm. Can anyone help me? This is the relevant output:

[rosmake-0] Finished <<< re_ontology [PASS] [ 350.35 seconds ]

As mentioned in another answer, it seems like its due to some refactoring in KnowRob.

So after you checkout the latest source code into your ROS_PACKAGE_PATH as described by @mortiz.

(I have not checked if this would work without the new package... you may try replacing the import line first before attempting to pull in knew knowrob)

svn co http://code.in.tum.de/pubsvn/knowrob/tags/latest knowrob

Replace the following import line with the one below it in the files which are causing this problem:

import de.tum.in.fipm.kipm.gui.visualisation.applets.CommunicationVisApplet; //delete

import edu.tum.cs.ias.knowrob.vis.applets.CommunicationVisApplet; //add

/roboearth/re_comm/src/roboearth/wp5/CopRoboEarthInterface.java
/roboearth/re_comm/src/roboearth/wp5/REClients.java
/roboearth/re_comm/src/roboearth/wp1/UnizarRoboEarthInterface.java

This is related to a refactoring in the KnowRob stack that changed some namespaces. You may need to install KnowRob from source by checking it out somewhere into your ROS_PACKAGE_PATH:

svn co http://code.in.tum.de/pubsvn/knowrob/tags/latest knowrob

Otherwise you can also just comment out those lines where 'CommunicationVisApplet' appears.

Pulling new code did not seem to fix it. I guess commenting out is the only way.
