  • API2 installation at the PC with ROS


    I want to control robotino with Ros kinetic and then make a navigation system.
    I am using the robotino3.
    I followed this tutorial to install the api2 into my computer: and when a try the make install command I have this problem:

    [email protected]:~/build/api2$ make install
    MMX enabled on Linux
    SSE and SSE2 enabled on Linux

    Someone knows how to fix it?

    The first thing that came to my mind: why don't you use the prebuild binaries (see and then use apt-get install robotino-* or the like?

      I tryed but It is not locating the package.
      [email protected]:/home/raspberry# wget -qO - |sudo apt-key add -
      [email protected]:/home/raspberry# echo "deb xenial main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openrobotino.list
      [email protected]:/home/raspberry# apt-get install robotino
      Reading package lists... Done
      Building dependency tree
      Reading state information... Done
      E: Unable to locate package robotino

      ps.: I am using the ubuntu xenial at the raspberry pi

        When a updated I had the following error:
        All packages are up to date.
        N: Skipping acquire of configured file 'main/binary-armhf/Packages' as repository ' xenial InRelease' doesn't support architecture 'armhf'
        I think that it won't work at the robotino. Do you have any other idea?

          To me it seems like ARM architectures are simply not supported. I would suggest that you try to install it on another machine to make sure that this is the problem. At the moment I have no Pi at work to test it. If I find some time, I might check it out at home.
