Instructions to install Pepper software

  • find out the credentials in case you are installing at FI MU
  • otherwise, you may download the tools from Aldebaran (sections Old: Choregraphe and Old: Pepper SDK) - for Linux, Mac (supports OS X 10.11 only), or Windows
  • install Choregraphe:
    • download
    • run
      chmod +x
      sudo ./
    • do the default installation to /opt
    • try to run
      "/opt/Softbank Robotics/Choregraphe Suite 2.5/bin/choregraphe_launcher"
      in case of error
      /opt/Softbank Robotics/Choregraphe Suite 2.5/bin/../lib/../lib/../lib/ 
      version `ZLIB_1.2.9' not found (required by /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/
      cd "/opt/Softbank Robotics/Choregraphe Suite 2.5/lib/"
      sudo mv
      sudo ln -s /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/
  • install Python SDK for Linux:
    • install qttools5-dev-tools/qt5-linguist or qt4-linguist-tools
    • download pynaoqi-python2.7-
    • run
      cd /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages
      sudo tar xvfz <where_the_package_is>/pynaoqi-python2.7-
      sudo bash -c "echo /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pynaoqi-python2.7- \
           > pynaoqi-python2.7.pth"
    • test with (note that python2 must be old Python 2.7)
      python2 -c 'import qi'
    • if something goes wrong, check that:
      • python2 -c 'import sys;print "\n".join(sys.path)' includes /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pynaoqi-python2.7-
      • the current user has read access to the files and subdirectories in this directory. You may need
        sudo chmod 755 /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pynaoqi-python2.7-
  • install qiBuild (again for Python 2.7):
    sudo pip2 install qibuild paramiko
