I started using ROS few months back and have been switching between Fuerte and Groovy lately. I use ROS mainly for interacting with PR2 in simulation.

Many tutorials inside ROS related to PR2 seems to be based on Diamonback or Electric. Such as .

http://www.ros.org/wiki/arm_navigation/Tutorials

And most of tutorials in there doesn't work in Fuerte or Groovy.

Which version does people mostly use? Please share any opinions. Thanks!

PR2 simulation in Groovy is still not the most stable. Would recommend sticking to Fuerte for now. I use Groovy on the real PR2, which is fine, but switch between Fuerte and Groovy still for simulation.

The problem I have is that with Fuerte, I find most tutorials not working. Do you face similar probelms?

Among many these really don't work on Fuerte and Groovy: www.ros.org/wiki/pr2_pick_and_place_demos/Tutorials Do you know of any working pick and place demo?

Hm. Those are pretty out of date, aren't they? I just updated the pick and place autonomous demo tutorial: http://www.ros.org/wiki/pr2_pick_and_place_demos/Tutorials/The%20Pick%20and%20Place%20Autonomous%20Demo/ for Fuerte. Let me know if something still doesn't work.

You run Groovy on real PR2? That means you guys run Ubuntu 12.04 on your PR2s?

Yup, Groovy/Precise.
