2019-07-20 09:35:21 -0500 marked best answer Can cartographer publish odom?

Is there any way to have the cartographer publish the odom topic in localization-only mode? I'm quite happy with the 2D localization results it provides, compared to other ROS methods using my very noisy IMU and slipping encoders, but I don't get the odom from it, despite provide_odom_frame set to true. Is it even supposed to work?

Thank you! Alex
