I've been using ROS Fuerte since a few months. Recently I've installed ROS Groovy to see what's new. Installation was no problem on my Ubuntu 12.10 system. However, I can not use 'roslocate info' for installing packages. I usually installed stage, teleop_twist_keyboard, etc., with this method: roslocate info stage | rosws merge - (then source setup.bash, and call rosws update).

Output on my system:

rope@computer:$ roslocate info stage

rosinstall malformed for package stage

Yes, roslocate is not working very well at the moment. I believe this is a known problem, so please verify before opening another defect ticket.

EDIT: The source link on the stage wiki page suggests adding it to your workspace like this:

$ rosws set stage --svn
$ rosws update stage

Well then, how do I install a package in ROS Groovy?
