Hi Friends

Lets get into installing player project in the ubuntu system in a very easy process of 10 steps.

Note:Please make sure the system has no version of opencv installed,if present make sure to remove it completely from the system libraries.You can install it after this process is complete.Also for  Ubuntu 12.10,13.04 or 13.10 the process remains same,but the library names/versions of dependencies we are going to install may differ.

Let's get started:-

Step 1:-

Create a directory named src in /home directory

In the terminal,type the following
a)mkdir src
b)cd src

Step 2:-

Download player and stage tar files and store in src

e)cmake ../
f)sudo make

*****************************************************************************

NOTE:-Error bugs for make(if errors dont appear in 'make',please skip this part)

--error bugs while installation(if no errors skip this part)
1)cmake stopped with errors in timer.cpp
:- add #include <unistd.h> in timer.cpp

2)artoolkitplus error
:- install artoolkitplus
--$ cd Downloads
$ wget https://launchpad.net/artoolkitplus/trunk/2.3.0/+download/ARToolKitPlus-2.3.0.tar.bz2
$ tar xvjf ARToolKitPlus-2.3.0.tar.bz2
$ cd ARToolKitPlus-2.3.0
$ mkdir build
$ cd build
$ cmake ..
$ make
$ sudo make install

3)cmake stopped with readlog.cc error
:-make changes in readlog.cc
change line 668  -->  ret = gzseek(this->file,0,SEEK_SET);
TO -->                ret = gzseek((gzFile)this->file,0,SEEK_SET);
change line 714  -->  ret = (gzgets(this->file, this->line, this->line_size) == NULL);
TO -->                ret = (gzgets((gzFile)this->file, this->line, this->line_size) == NULL);

4)assembler message error
:- do "sudo make" instead of "make"

5)link cxx error-(cannot find opencv and other bullshits)(STILL A PROBLEM)
--
a)changes in .bashrc file of build
$cd
$gksudo gedit ./bashrc
add the following to it
$ export PATH=~/usr/local/bin:$PATH
$ export CPATH=~/usr/local/include:$CPATH
$ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=~/usr/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

b)change the CMAKE_CXX_FLAGS variable in /player-3.0.2/build/CMakeCache.txt.
Change the line
CMAKE_CXX_FLAGS:STRING=
To
CMAKE_CXX_FLAGS:STRING=   -lboost_system
c)install all libdc files
d)install libpq-dev libpqxx-dev

****************************END OF ERROR BUGS*******************

g)sudo make

h)sudo make install

i)sudo updatedb

Step 5:-

Open a new terminal and type

a)gksudo gedit ./bashrc

When the file opens,add the following to the end of it

PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$PKG_CONFIG_PATH:/home/USER/src/player-3.0.2/build/libplayercore
PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$PKG_CONFIG_PATH:/home/USER/src/player-3.0.2/build/libplayerinterface
PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$PKG_CONFIG_PATH:/home/USER/src/player-3.0.2/build/libplayercommon
PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$PKG_CONFIG_PATH:/home/USER/src/player-3.0.2/build/
PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$PKG_CONFIG_PATH:/home/USER/src/player-3.0.2/build/client_libs/libplayerc++
PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$PKG_CONFIG_PATH:/home/USER/src/player-3.0.2/build/client_libs/libplayerc
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH
export PATH=$PATH:"/usr/local/lib64"
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:"/usr/local/lib":"/usr/local/lib64"
export PLAYERPATH="/usr/local/lib":"/usr/local/lib64"
export STAGEPATH="/usr/local/lib":"/usr/local/lib64"

Step 6:-

Checking installation

in the treminal : $ pkg-config --libs playercore
(output: -L/usr/local/lib64 -lplayercore -lpthread -lltdl -ldl -lplayerinterface -lplayercommon)
In the terminal : $ pkg-config --cflags playercore
(output: -I/usr/local/include/player-3.0)

Step 7:-

Install Stage

In the terminal,type the following

a)sudo apt-get update
b)sudo apt-get upgrade
c)tar xzvf Stage-3.2.2-Source.tar.gz
d)cd Stage-3.2.2-Source/
e)mkdir build
f)cd build/
g)cmake ../
h)sudo make

*****************************************************************************************

NOTE:-Error bugs for make(if errors dont appear in 'make',please skip this part)

--error bugs while installation(if no errors skip this part)

--error with undefined reference to various libs and functions

In the same terminal,type
a)cd ..
c)sudo gedit CMakeLists.txt

Note:-This CMakeListestxt file will be in the folder Stage-3.2.2-Source,make sure to do the changes in the correct one if you open a new terminal
change the three lines:
SET (CMAKE_CXX_FLAGS_RELEASE " -O3 -DNDEBUG ${WALL} " CACHE INTERNAL "C Flags for release" FORCE)
SET (CMAKE_CXX_FLAGS_DEBUG " -ggdb ${WALL} " CACHE INTERNAL "C Flags for debug" FORCE)
SET (CMAKE_CXX_FLAGS_PROFILE " -O3 -ggdb -pg ${WALL} " CACHE INTERNAL "C Flags for profile" FORCE)

TO:

SET (CMAKE_CXX_FLAGS_RELEASE " -O3 -DNDEBUG -Wl,--no-as-needed" CACHE INTERNAL "C Flags for release" FORCE)
SET (CMAKE_CXX_FLAGS_DEBUG " -ggdb -Wl,--no-as-needed " CACHE INTERNAL "C Flags for debug" FORCE)
SET (CMAKE_CXX_FLAGS_PROFILE " -O3 -ggdb -pg -Wl,--no-as-needed " CACHE INTERNAL "C Flags for profile" FORCE)

(save and close the file)

********************* END OF ERROR BUGS*******************************

i)cd build

j)sudo make

k)sudo make install

Step 8:-

Testing installation
open a new terminal
a)cd src/Stage-3.2.2-Source/worlds
b)player simple.cfg

Step 9:-

Installing gazebo(1.9.1)
open a new terminal

a)sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://packages.osrfoundation.org/gazebo/ubuntu precise main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/gazebo-latest.list'
b)wget http://packages.osrfoundation.org/gazebo.key -O - | sudo apt-key add -
c)sudo apt-get update
d)sudo apt-get install gazebo

Step 10 :-

Testing gazebo
open a new terminal

a)gazebo
(for the first run it takes time to open the gui,keep patience)

NOTE:-to add models manually to gazebo
open a terminal and type
a)cd ~/.gazebo/models
b)wget -R *index.html*,*.tar.gz --cut-dirs=1 --no-parent -r -x -nH http://gazebosim.org/models/HERE YOU ENTER THE MODEL NAME/

You have now succeeded in installing player/stage/gazebo.
