In my earlier post on HashBot I mentioned that, My Samsung NC110 netbook with Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric) and ROS Electric installed will act as HashBot brain.
I had already installed Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric) in my Samsung NC110 netbook. So I just updated the system with Ubuntu’s Update Manager before installing ROS.
Then I just followed the steps mentioned on ROS installation guide page “Ubuntu install of Electric”.
Setup computer to accept software from ROS.org.
$ sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://packages.ros.org/ros/ubuntu oneiric main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list'
Set up keys
$ wget http://packages.ros.org/ros.key -O - | sudo apt-key add -
re-indexe the ROS.org server
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install ros-electric-desktop-full
ROS Electric desktop full was installed without any errors. It took around 1GB for download and around 2GB after install on hard-disk.
Next I will explore ROS Tutorials.
