  • Remove the installed HARK packages.
sudo apt-get remove hark-ros-<ROS version> hark-ros-msgs-<ROS version>

<ROS version> means the “OLD” ROS version such as “indigo”, “kinetic”, etc…

  • Install the HARK packages for new ROS version.
sudo apt-get install hark-ros-<ROS version> hark-ros-msgs-<ROS version>

Step1 : ROS Installation

Choose one of the following versions of ROS.

 

 

 

Step2 : HARK-related ROS msgs Installation

Notes:hark-ros-msgs-<ROS version>-2.4.0 or later allows the packages to be build using catkin_make. If you wish to utilize any version below 2.4.0 please follow this link HARK-ROS Installation Instructions (Legacy method for rosbuild users). This is due to the fact that older versions of hark-ros-msgs use rosbuild.

Move to your preferred directory.

cd ${HOME}/YOUR_HARK_DOWNLOAD_DIR

Download the latest hark-ros-msgs source code.

apt source hark-ros-msgs-<ROS version>

Compile and install the source codes.

cd hark-ros-<ROS version>
mkdir build 
cd build 
source ~${HOME}/YOUR_HARK-ROS-MSGS_DOWNLOAD_DIR/hark-ros-msgs-<ROS version>/devel/setup.sh
cmake .. 
make 
sudo make install

 

You can either copy the whole workspace (hark-ros-msgs-<ROS version> file) paste it to any desired directory OR you can copy the packages inside the SRC file (hark_common_msg & hark_stacks) and paste it to your own workspace inside the SRC file. Then simply run the following command.

catkin_make

Important Notes

To be able to utilize HARK Topic Messages, you will need to source your catkin work space.

 

source ~${HOME}/YOUR_HARK-ROS-MSGS_DOWNLOAD_DIR/hark-ros-msgs-<ROS version>/devel/setup.sh

 

If you have installed hark-ros-msgs via apt-get please

source /opt/ros/<ROS version>/msgs/setup.sh

You will need to run this command every time you open a new command shell or you can add it to the bashrc.

 

 

Step 3: HARK Basic Package Installation
