Installing the Software on NUC
NOTE: Don't run this step if you have purchased build LoCobot from Trossen, instead follow these steps.
These steps were tested on the Intel NUC provided with the assembly kit
Install Ubuntu 16.04
Download the installation script
sudo apt update sudo apt-get install curl curl 'https://raw.githubusercontent.com/facebookresearch/pyrobot/master/robots/LoCoBot/install/locobot_install_all.sh' > locobot_install_all.sh
- Run the script to install everything (ROS, realsense driver, etc.). Please connect the nuc machine to a realsense camera before running the following commands.
chmod +x locobot_install_all.sh ./locobot_install_all.sh
Warning: As realsense keeps updating, compatibility issues might occur if you accidentally update
realsense-related packages from
Software Updater in ubuntu. Therefore, we recommend you not to update
any libraries related to realsense. Check the list of updates carefully when ubuntu prompts software udpates.
