Installing gazebo is pretty straight forward as described in this post.
If you used the instructions from the ros wiki, you’d have a ros workspace set up.
A few devel packages are required though. I think the following list covers it. Look out for any build errors. If there are any more packages to be installed, the error messages will tell you:
sudo yum install freeimage-devel player-devel libtool-ltdl-devel cegui-devel libtar-devel protobuf-devel libXaw-devel ois-devel cd ros_ws #your ros workspace #common_rosdeps: required by ogre rosws set common_rosdeps --hg https://kforge.ros.org/common/rosdepcore !source setup.sh rosws update common_rosdeps rosmake common_rosdeps #vizualization_common. The fedora ogre package doesn't appear to cut it. rosws set visualization_common --svn https://code.ros.org/svn/ros-pkg/stacks/visualization_common/trunk source setup.sh rosws update visualization_common rosmake visualization_common #gazebo rosws set simulator_gazebo --svn https://code.ros.org/svn/ros-pkg/stacks/simulator_gazebo/trunk source setup.sh rosws update simulator_gazebo rosmake simulator_gazebo
It’ll take a while to install. Took about 30 minutes on my system. That completes the install. I’m still trying to figure out how to use it though. Maybe I’ll write another post when I get somewhere with that.
EDIT: While this appears to install gazebo properly, it doesn’t run. It gives me an OGRE missing openGL error, but OGRE is indeed installed with openGL support.
