I am quite new to ROS and ubuntu but whatever i try i am keep getting the error so i hope someone can help me out! I need to install 2 packages:

  1. ardrone_autonomy
  2. tum_ardrone

i followed these steps for both packages:

# cd into ros root dir roscd

# clone repository git clone git://github.com/tum-vision/tum_ardrone.git tum_ardrone

# add to ros path (if required) export ROS_PACKAGE_PATH=$ROS_PACKAGE_PATH:pwd/tum_ardrone

# build package (may take up to 10 minutes) rosmake tum_ardrone

even though they are both in opt/ros/hydro i can only run ardrone_autonomy whenever i try to run tum_ardrone i am getting the error.

leroy@leroy-pc:~$ env |grep ROS ROS_ROOT=/opt/ros/hydro/share/ros






and in my .bashrc it says : source /opt/ros/hydro/setup.bash

i am using ROS hydro and ubuntu 12.04.

thank you in advance!

the first package should be available via apt-get: sudo apt-get install ros-hydro-ardrone-autonomy For the second one, why don't you use the hydro-devel branch of that repo and catkin? Also please don't install anything manually to /opt/ros. Create your own catkin workspace.
