APT and Rosdep Configuration

To install the IndoorNav software on your robot you must add the ROS1, ROS2, and Clearpath Robotics package servers to your apt configuration. This is normally done automatically by Clearpath’s OS installation media, but if you are missing any of these sources, use the following commands to add them

ROS1 Noetic

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://packages.ros.org/ros/ubuntu $(lsb_release -sc) main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list'
curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ros/rosdistro/master/ros.asc | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update

ROS2 Foxy

echo "deb [arch=$(dpkg --print-architecture) signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/ros-archive-keyring.gpg] http://packages.ros.org/ros2/ubuntu $(source /etc/os-release && echo $UBUNTU_CODENAME) main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros2.list > /dev/null
sudo curl -sSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ros/rosdistro/master/ros.key  -o /usr/share/keyrings/ros-archive-keyring.gpg
sudo apt-get update

Clearpath Robotics

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb https://packages.clearpathrobotics.com/stable/ubuntu $(lsb_release -cs) main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/clearpath-latest.list'
wget https://packages.clearpathrobotics.com/public.key -O - | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update

Once you have enabled the necessary package sources, make sure rosdep can resolve all the necessary dependencies:

sudo wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/clearpathrobotics/public-rosdistro/master/rosdep/50-clearpath.list -O /etc/ros/rosdep/sources.list.d/50-clearpath.list
rosdep update
