Old instructions: From the ground up!

  1. Install Ubuntu.
    • You can do this as a dual-boot, or on a virtual machine.
    • Any version from 10.04+ should be ok. I am using 12.04.
  2. Install ROS.
  3. Do the ROS tutorials.
  4. Install git.
    • In Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install git
  5. Use git to download the repository.

Compiling scoutsim

  1. Compiling in ros is easy (unless the build is broken!) Do this:
    • roscd scoutsim
    • rosmake
    • roscd libscout
    • rosmake
  2. If something broke, let us know! It's not supposed to.
