Install on Ubuntu 18.04



I’d like to install the platform on a remote machine running Ubuntu 18.04, with ROS melodic and Gazebo 9. Is this possible with a source install yet, or is a docker install the way to go for now? Can’t find any definitive info on this, and the installation instructions only mentions support for ubuntu 14.04 and 16.04.




Dear Oskar,

If everything goes according to plans,support for Ubuntu 18.04 and the migration to Gazebo 9 will be part of our Release 2.3.

Unfortunately, there is at the moment no easy way to use Neurorobotics platform on Ubuntu 18.04.
Best regards,


are there any news here? I saw gazebo repo has ubuntu18 branch



Indeed we are working on migrating to ubuntu 18, and most of the work has been done. There are still some open issues left before it is complete though. We will publish it immediately as soon as it is ready.
