Installing Player/Stage in Ubuntu (Natty Narwhal)

A few months ago I wrote a guide to installing Player/Stage on a clean Natty Narwhal Ubuntu install for the robot lab I work at. This was on a protected wiki, but I think maybe it'd also be beneficial to the world in general, so I'll guide you through the installation process (with pictures!) in this blog entry.

I'm pretty sure this guide will work for any version of Ubuntu that has Ubuntu Software Centre on it, but I've only tested these instructions for Natty. If you followed these instructions to install Player/Stage on a non-Natty version of Ubuntu do leave a comment so that others can know whether it works.

A newer version of these instructions for Ubuntu 11.10 can be found here.

If you have any problems or questions that aren't addressed here then I recommend you email the playerstage users mailing list.
