Hi,

I got the following error when tried to do the rosdep install with the full package in ROS...

Error: No available formula for gtest Failed to install gtest! [ rosmake ] rosdep install failed: Rosdep install failed
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/local/bin/rosinstall", line 16, in sys.exit(not rosinstall_main(sys.argv)) File "/Library/Python/2.7/site-packages/rosinstall/rosinstall_cli.py", line 229, in rosinstall_main options.catkinpp) File "/Library/Python/2.7/site-packages/rosinstall/rosinstall_cmd.py", line 100, in cmd_generate_ros_files subprocess.check_call("source %s && rosmake ros%s --rosdep-install%s" % (os.path.join(path, 'setup.sh'), ros_comm_insert, rosdep_yes_insert), shell=True, executable='/bin/bash') File "/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/subprocess.py", line 511, in check_call raise CalledProcessError(retcode, cmd) subprocess.CalledProcessError: Command 'source /Users/shyamal/ros/setup.sh && rosmake ros ros_comm --rosdep-install' returned non-zero exit status 1

Why is ROS broken on Mountain Lion? If it is still broken, how do I uninstall all the tools that I just installed to get all the way up to the rosdep install command? If you have any bugs with the OSX version, could I please help to make it work because I hate using ROS on Ubuntu (currently the defacto OS of choice)?

You can install it manually, but until we figure out a better way of distributing it that is the best solution.

We don't want to distribute gtest with ROS because on Ubuntu there is a package which distributes the source for us.
