I have been attempting to install diamondback.

I enter "sudo apt-get install ros-diamondback-desktop-full"

and get

"unable to locate package ros-diamondback-desktop-full"

I am completely new to linux, so any help would be greatly appreciated

After adding the ROS repositories to your apt sources and adding the WillowGarage keys (steps 1.2 and 1.3 of the Ubuntu installation guide), make sure you also run sudo apt-get update (beginning of step 1.4).

sudo apt-get update will instruct apt to refresh it's list of available software to take into account the fact that you just added new repositories.

After this, you should be able to run sudo apt-get install ros-diamondback-desktop-full with no problems.

Thanks Eric, I tried again, going through from scratch with the same result.

The only thing I can think is I am not setting up repositories correctly. The ROS link takes you to ubuntu which gives an overview of that feature but with functionality that does not work the same in Maverick.

I went through to the command line instructions, now I'm even more confused.

If there are just a some command lines I need to enter to setup the repositories, would you be able to enter them into an answer?

Thanks, Dave
