3D Simulator installation guide
The new version of the simulator uses the ROS framework. The simulator is a ROS package and need to be compile using the ROS tools.
To install the ROS framework, follow instructions on the ROS website : http://www.ros.org/wiki/ROS/Installation
First, download the 3D Simulator tarball on the INRIA forge : https://gforge.inria.fr/frs/?group_id=42
Uncompress the archive and set the ROS_PACKAGE_PATH environment variable to add the 3D Simulator location (you can add this line on your .bashrc file) :
Next, you need to check and install missing dependencies :
rosdep install CycabTKSimulator
Then, compile the simulator with rosmake (it can take a long time the first time as it will compile all required ros packages) :
It is possible that you have to install some packages like libsigc++-2.0-dev, libluabind-dev, liblua5.1-0-dev, libglew1.5 and libglew1.5-dev before the previous compilation:
sudo aptitude install libsigc++-2.0-dev libluabind-dev liblua5.1-0-dev libglew1.5 libglew1.5-dev
You can check that the compilation has created a file cycabtk.conf in the directory ~/.config/mgengine/conf.d. This file contain configuration information for mgEngine such as modules path, lua path, etc.
