For some reason, colcon-core, vcstool and catkin_pkg are not installed successfully or are not added to PATH. Running colcon does not work while rosdep does but complains that catkin_pkg could not be found. Installing these three packages locally to my system using pip fixed these issues and I could successfully compile and run ROS2. I created this issue:

sip was upgraded to 6.0 and python-sip is now provided by python-sip4. This may cause problems.

I did not notice any errors, but just wanted to make others aware.

Dear @Blutkoete, currently this is ok for me. If I bug you more often, then I can happily co-maintain.

Thank you for your efforts!

Hi @leuko,

I thought about it and added them as optdepends=().

By the way, I'm only using ROS2 for some interoperability tests, and you all appear to be using it more heaviliy, so if someone wants to maintain or co-maintain this dependency package feel free to do so. Else I'll just keep adding and moving around dependencies if you name them (also ok for me :)).

rqt needs for example python-pyqtgraph for using plugins->visualization->plot. Otherwise:

RuntimeError: No usable plot type found. Install at least one of: PyQtGraph, MatPlotLib (at least 1.4.0) or Python-Qwt5.

Hi @calvertdw,

thank you. I moved it in the PKGBUILD to the "official" section. I did not bump the version because it's only an organizational change to the PKGBUILD.

python-notify2 is now an official package and can be moved out of the AUR section of the PKGBUILD for us that aren't using AUR helpers. ;)

For running the node graph in rqt the pydot library python-pydot is needed.

Blutkoete commented on 2020-08-09 10:44

Thank you and please excuse the time it took to correct that (holiday season, hooray!).

This PKGBUILD does not differentiate between makedepends and depends currently and I think I'm not deep enough into ROS2 development on Arch Linux to sort it all out.

For building libxrandr is needed by rviz_ogre_vendor.

For running rviz2 qt5-svg is needed. (otherwise rviz2 cannot load SVG pixmap packages for cursors)
