OpenRAVE R1457 Ubuntu Install

From Asibot & HOAP3 & TEO Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Note: Depends on Boost.

sudo apt-get install libqt4-dev qt4-dev-tools libxml2-dev libode-dev
sudo apt-get install libsoqt4-dev libcoin60-dev 
svn co -r 1457 openrave
cd openrave/trunk; mkdir build; cd build
cmake ..
sudo make install
cd ../..

(Note from [vtejada and mstoelen]: In our case we use r2868) so we wrote:

svn co -r 2868 openrave)

For correct integration with CMake, find "FindOpenRAVE.cmake" (it should be in the openrave/src/cppexamples directory). Copy it to the CMake Modules path (something like /usr/share/cmake-2.x/Modules). This line would be something like (change the x to your cmake version):

sudo cp openrave/src/cppexamples/FindOpenRAVE.cmake /usr/share/cmake-2.x/Modules

(Note from [ajardon]: In my case: from a fresh Ubuntu 10.04 instalation, the cmake version was 2.8 ) so I wrote:

sudo cp openrave/trunk/src/cppexamples/FindOpenRAVE.cmake /usr/share/cmake-2.8/Modules

(Note from [jgvictores]: sudo apt-get install libsoqt4-dev libcoin60-dev -> sudo apt-get install libsoqt4-dev libcoin40-dev for Ubuntu 9.04)

( note from [ajardon]: after downloading the right revision, when executes cmake.. you will probably get the following error: ajardon@ajardon-HP:~/build$ cmake .. CMake Error: The source directory "/home/ajardon" does not appear to contain CMakeLists.txt. Specify --help for usage, or press the help button on the CMake GUI.

be patient, just do the folowing:

find and edit the hidden file at home dir named .bashrc

at the end of this file add the following line:

export YARP_DIR=/home/ajardon/yarp-2.2.6/build

with your right home path...

that's all folks

[jgvictores] says ...the following is nice!!

In order to use the python bindings through the openravepy module, install the following packages before compiling OpenRAVE:

sudo apt-get install libboost-python-dev python python-dev python-numpy python-scipy python-imaging-tk

To setup the python path in bash add the following line:

export PYTHONPATH=$PYTHONPATH:`openrave-config --python-dir`
