Install Robot Operating System


Hello everybody.

Currently doing my internship in prague, I need to use the ROS Kinetic software. But I never use linux before. So, like any beginner, I looked tutorials to follow the right steps. Problem, it doesn't work.
In spite of my weak knowledge on the subject, it seems to me that it comes from the fact that I currently have ubuntu bionic 18.04, and that ROS Kinetic is only compatible with xenial, wily or jessie. And I don't know how to do from that moment on. I have tried to move to xenial, but I don't know linux to succeed.
can you help me please?

Location: Earth? I would say I hope so but I'm not so sure about that... I could just be a figment of your imagination too.
Distribution: CentOS at the time of this writing, but some others over the years too...

I guess the first step would be to download Debian (for example), and then read it's website about installing it, setting it up, and then installing software onto it.

You would need to get familiar with it's package manager, to install what you need, and then go from there.

You should also post any error messages you get and provide a detailed problem description.

The ROS is only certified with certain releases of each different distribution.

Please read this WIKI, http://wiki.ros.org/Distributions, from ROS.org.

When you said you've looked at tutorials, please offer links to what you've followed.

The link for ROS Kinetic Kame is in the above link and cited as the recommended option.

Meanwhile that release does not correspond with Ubuntu 18.04. Please check their information and when you update LQ members, please show and describe exactly what you've tried in greater detail.

I don't feel you should be distribution hopping, but instead use the recommended distribution, and version shown in that WIKI. I am saying that you haven't as yet tried the recommended path. Please review the WIKI, follow the link for the Kinetic Kame and then follow those installation instructions and update the forum with your progress or further questions. Make sure you have the correct Ubuntu version installed, which is not 18.04.

Normally one doesn't exactly remove linux. They can copy over the filesystem or remove partitions. Part of this issue is that installers some times makes changes to other linux installs kind of difficult. May have to boot to a supported DVD that you created and then remove partitions. Then reboot to attempt the install.

I'd guess that someone locally could assist you.

If you don't want to install Debian you could install Ubuntu 16.04.
