I have a Baxter robot that has an Oculus Hydra razor setup on it. I also have a Clearpath Ridgeback that I am going to mount it on. Both robots support running on Indigo so i upgraded the laptop. My issue now is the package that runs the Hydra razor is only available for Hydro. Is there any way to run a Hydro package with Ubuntu 14.04 and ROS Indigo.

You can run Hydro code in Indigo by cloning the repository to an Ubuntu 14.04 based system that also has ROS Indigo sourced. You can then make a catkin_workspace and put the code in that workspace to build it. If it builds, great. If not, you'll have to fight with it until it builds. Once it builds however, you will be able to use it alongisde your existing ROS system as long as you have that workspace sourced in whatever terminal you're using it with. I suggest adding it to your ~/.bashrc if it will be a continuing occurrence.

I don't know if I can get it to work but I will give it a try when I get to this stage. I plan to install the Hydro distro code and the newer drivers on top of it.

Comment by mewescott on 2017-09-11:
I have installed all the latest drivers and the Hydro version software written for the Baxter to Hydra interface. It would not run. I get the following messages and I am not sure how to correct them; couldn't open hydra on /dev/hydra couldn't open hidraw device Any suggestions would be appreciated
