  • What's the difference between the different ways to install Robotino api2 ?

    Hello, Everyone.

    There are two Robotinos in our Laboratory and we want to compile the robotino example with cmake in our private computer.
    Then it could run as executable file in robotino system ( here is Ubuntu 16.04 Xential).

    But there are lots of ways to install Robotino API2. like:

    1. sudo apt-get install robotino-api2 (
    2. API2 source build from Wiki Site (
    3. Download deb file using this site (

    Which ways can install API2 in my private computer and to compile the examples rightly?
    If it is impossible to achieve in my private Ubuntu system, please also tell me.

    And this error always occurs and I got stuck for 2 weeks ; (

    Thank you very much.

          Robotino has a standard Ubuntu 16.04 installation. You should really be able to install ROS there. ROS has very good documentation regarding installation and first steps. You should have allok there and later ask specific questions.
