I have recently had to rebuild my ROSbot 2.0 Pro image with the Melodic image provided by Husarion. Upon revisiting the tutorials, they seem to be in a state of disrepair. Attempting to use the Gazebo model provided at:
github repo rosbot_description
The instructions assume kinetic is installed, while the default image for the robot is melodic.
Regardless, I followed the instructions on the github repo to clone and build the software on my machine with ubuntu 18 and melodic installed. to which I recieve the following error:
RLException: Unable to contact my own server at [http://VMlaptop:38321/].
Where VMlaptop is my husarnet id for my laptop.
I’ve also noticed many of the tutorials don’t seem to work properly. I’ve even cloned and built the solutions in the following repo:
github repo tutorial_pkg
And I’m still having issues getting the robot to run the launch files proper as it had prior to my recent rebuild.
My question is, has anyone actually run through the tutorials from start to end using each robot?
It seems there is a decent amount of github activity on ROS2 docker packages, but there’s not a whole lot explaining how to build them or use them. Where do I find how to create and use the Docker containers? If the intent is to move to ROS2, where are the tutorials for ROS2?
I’m finding it incredibly hard to learn anything from the tutorials at this point, which was the whole purpose of purchasing this robot.
