ROSXBee is a ROS2 package hence it requires ROS2 Foxy Fitzroy as main pre-requisite and it also has few python3 dependencies, and you can get them set up by below instructions,

1. ROS2 Foxy Fitzroy Installation

Go to this link ROS Foxy Fitzroy installation and follow the official guide to install ROS in ubuntu or follow the below steps for linux users.

  • Set local
  locale  # check for UTF-8

  sudo apt update && sudo apt install locales
  sudo locale-gen en_US en_US.UTF-8
  sudo update-locale LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8 LANG=en_US.UTF-8
  export LANG=en_US.UTF-8

  locale  # verify settings

  • Setup your source.list

You will need to add the ROS 2 apt repositories to your system. To do so, first authorize our GPG key with apt like this:

  sudo apt update && sudo apt install curl gnupg2 lsb-release
  curl -s | sudo apt-key add -

And then add the repository to your sources list:

  sudo sh -c 'echo "deb [arch=$(dpkg --print-architecture)] $(lsb_release -cs) main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros2-latest.list'

  • Install ROS 2 Foxy Fitzroy Desktop
    • First, make sure your Debian package index is up-to-date,
    sudo apt update

  • Install Ros2 Desktop full:
    sudo apt install ros-foxy-desktop

  • Environment Setup
    • To use ROS2 in your terminal source the ROS2 installation,
    source /opt/ros/foxy/setup.bash

  • Install Argcomplete: ROS 2 command line tools use argcomplete to autocompletion. So if you want autocompletion, installing argcomplete is necessary.
    sudo apt install -y python3-pip
    pip3 install -U argcomplete

  • Install Colcon
  sudo apt-get install python3-colcon-common-extensions

2. Pip Installation
