Install software

To get you up speed as soon as possible, we created a nice little installer script that will set-up your computer in no-time. It will download, install and compile all necessary software and if all goes well, you can start using our robot simulator within 30 minutes. Just do the following:

  • Open a terminal (ctrl-alt-t)
  • Download the install script:
  • And run it (Remark: This last step may not work when booting Ubuntu from an USB. Dual booting is thus recommended):
    source install.bash

That's it! The installer may ask for confirmation a few times because it has to install some programs system wide. Just enter your password, and you'll be good to go!

Head to the next tutorial to set-up your workspace.
