I'm trying to install the openrave ROS package for Fuerte on Ubuntu 12.04, but I can't find it (nothing looking like ros-fuerte-openrave... in the available packages in the repositories).

The wiki page says "Cannot load information on name: openrave, distro: fuerte" so I don't know where should I get the source code from to install the package from source.

Does anyone know how could I install this package?

Edit: I've found this question where the code of the openrave_planning (that happens to contain the package I need) is checked out from:

svn co

I assume this is the right repo, but still the">wiki doesn't point to the right data, and no package for this stack exists in the ROS fuerte ubuntu repositories.

That's the right place, I used a couple of packages from there with Fuerte last year.

People may write great ROS packages for their own research, but not have enough time to create a Ubuntu package or maintain external documentation like ROS wiki.

This guide will help you install it:

Thanks for the link. I finally installed openrave standalone, as I found out that it was only being used as a library by our package (we don't use any ROS node that the openrave ROS package may contain).
