Ignition Robotics - Gazebo

It seems Gazebo is NOW a part of Ignition Robotics??? Please take a look at my Ignition Robotics Bitbucket Issue What’s the realationship between ign-gazebo and gazebo? And, today, let’s build IgnitionRobotics from source.

How to Build IgnitionRobotics

Use Branch gz11

NOTE: In order to have the LATEST version built, please make sure you always give the priority to branch gz11 rather than branch default.

For instance ign-cmake:

1
git clone https://bitbucket.org/ignitionrobotics/ign-cmake/src/gz11/

Important Things

Two things to emphasize before building.

  1. To have all the packages at Ignition Robotics Development Libraries successfully built, we need to build all libraries in a particular sequence.
  2. Some required 3rd-party libraries are additionally installed while building Ignition Robotics Development Libraries, including:
1
#add_subdirectory(unifiedvideoinertialtracker)
  • folly: required by unifiedvideoinertialtracker, which requires boost built by C++14. For now, this is excluded from building.

Build Ignition Robotics

Now, let’s start building Ignition Robotics Development Libraries.

  1. ign-cmake: BUILD_TESTING OFF
  2. ign-math: ruby-dev needs to be installed FIRST
  3. ign-common: libgts needs to be installed FIRST
  4. ign-tools
  5. ign-msgs
  6. ign-transport: CXX_FLAGS=-I/usr/include/c++/7 and comment out line #35 of file test_config.h.
1
//#include <filesystem> // line 35
  1. ign-rendering: Modify CMakeLists.txt line 62, ogre to ogre2
  2. ign-plugin
  3. ign-gui
  4. ign-fuel-tools
  5. SDFormat8: C++8 is required for building
  6. ign-physics: Since I’m using dart 7.0, please figure out some trivial bugs about DartLoader in file DARTDoublePendulum.cc.
  7. ign-sensors
  8. ign-gazebo
  9. gazebo: Going to be deprecated soon
