I'm trying to compile rviz on fuerte running debian/amd64 sid.

I downloaded the package from the wiki.

Using rosmake leads to the following error:

$ rosmake visualization

[ rosmake ] rosmake 

[ rosmake ] Packages requested are: 



cannot find required resource: rviz

Where can I download it ?

In Fuerte, rviz was part of the visualization stack, before version 1.9.x. Now, it is a separate package.

To get the correct version for Fuerte, check out the fuerte branch from git://

Finally, I found an older version and successfully compiled it, with slight modifications in some source files.
