My Ohio State Internship and Linux Problems






 Hello again viewers and yes I am sorry that I haven't posted any new content recently. As some of you may know I am a High School Senior, and it is a pretty busy time right now. Currently I am doing an internship/Engineering Academy Project that involves robots (Roombas) and Linux. Yes the robots are Roomba vacuum cleaners without the vacuum function and the original controls. In order to use the Roombas, I have to do some programming in a simulator called Player/Stage.

If you want to find out more about Player/Stage go to this page:

HELP FOR THE CURIOUS OR PEOPLE ATTEMPTING TO INSTALL PLAYER/STAGE

If you want to install it Use this script from github because installing manually is tedious and you can easily mess up... It took me two days to install Player/Stage because there are so many dependencies and if you don't install them you will get a ton of errors when installing Player/Stage.

Link for the script from github:
