I’m currently trying to run a camera on the RPi, however, to use the camera I need to use the ros kinetic package rgbd_launch, however, I am unable to install the package via sudo apt install ros-kinetic-rgbd-launch as I get the no package found error. Is there a way of getting this package with the custom version of ROS kinetic installed on the navio?
Hi there, I’ve tried this and also manually installing the packages which are needed which doesn’t work, this is because of the custom distribution on the Navio2. The only real way around this issue is to move to a more supported distro like Ubuntu, this would make the Navio2 much more favorable for alot more robotic solutions. I’ve been working with the Navio2 for almost 6 months now and I just don’t think it’s cut out for ROS due to the small set of packages which are available for it.
I apologize that it took so long to get back to you!
Navio2 supports ROS kinetic. We’ll check if our pre-installed version is indeed preventing the packages from being installed. Would you mind specifying any other packages you had an issue with apart from the rgbd_launch?
Regarding the Ubuntu support, thanks for the request! I’ll transfer it to the devs team. However, at the moment, we don’t have plans of releasing the Ubuntu support.
