ActinROS

ROS plugins and applications for use with a ROS enabled Energid Actin SDK.

WINDOWS

  1. Download and install the installer. NOTE: It is recommended to put the installer someplace other than Program Files (i.e. C:/Energid/Installers/...)
  2. Windows XP only: download junction.exe. This is needed to create a link to the {third_party_source} repository from the installer location. You can download it here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896768
  3. Create a link from the ROOT installer directory (i.e. C:/Energid/Installers/Actin_4.1.0.20161028) to the ActinROS directory. This can be done as follows from the command prompt
  4. cd C:/Energid/Installers/Actin_4.1.0.20161028
  5. Windows XP: junction ActinROS C:/Your/Development/Repositories/ActinROS
  6. Windows 7/8: mklink /D ActinROS C:/Your/Development/Repositories/ActinROS

    Alternatively you can use the hard link shell extension utility to accomplish the same procedure from within File Explorer: http://schinagl.priv.at/nt/hardlinkshellext/linkshellextension.html
  7. Launch CMake
  8. Set "Where is the source" to the ROOT installer directory
  9. Set "Where to build the binaries" to ROOT/build (see below)
  10. Configure/Generate through Cmake.
  11. During configuration add ActinROS to EC_REPOSITORIES (stable;data;actin_core;toolkits;ActinROS).
  12. Go to ROOT/build and launch Energid.sln.
  13. In Visual Studio build the appropriate projects.

Executables will be built into ROOT/build/bin. Before running an executable make sure to add the following to the Path environment variable under User variables: %EC_TOOLKITS%..\bin

Unix

  1. Download and install the installer.
  2. Create a link from the ROOT installer directory (i.e. ~/Energid/Actin_4.1.0.20161028) to the ActinROS directory. This can be done as follows from the command prompt
  3. cd ~/Energid/Actin_4.1.0.20161028
  4. ln -s ~/Your/Development/Repositories/ActinROS ActinROS
  5. Launch CMake
  6. Set "Where is the source" to the ROOT installer directory
  7. Set "Where to build the binaries" to ROOT/build (see below)
  8. Configure/Generate through Cmake.
  9. During configuration add ActinROS to EC_REPOSITORIES (stable;data;actin_core;toolkits;ActinROS).
  10. Go to ROOT/build and build using configured make program (make, ninja, etc.) after sourcing SETUP.sh.
