vrep_ros_bridge is not compatible with new coppelia sim

Post by quangabcd »

Hi,
as vrep is changed into coppelia, i met problem during installation of vrep_ros_bridge (cat kin make)

Cannot find source file:

/home/abcd/Desktop/CoppeliaSim/programming/common/v_repLib.cpp

the file simply is changed to comLib.cpp. any adhoc effort of returning "vrep" name causes a lot of errors in catkin make.

any tutorial for coppelia to deal with ROS?

Hello,

V-REP was rebranded to CoppeliaSim in November 2019. This also means that all source code files that contained vrep or v_rep or similar were adapted. But they should still be compatible.

So instead of v_repLib.*, use simLib.*. Another options that would be easier would be the create symbolic links.

ROS-related tutorials with CoppeliaSim can be found here.

Cheers
