Tf2_tools not installed for ROS navigation project

I am attempted to complete the “ROS navigation real robot project”, and want to visualize the TF frame tree.

Unfortunately it seems that tf2_tools is not installed on the ROS instance associated with the ROS navigation project. Additionally, when I attempt to install tf2_tools with sudo apt-get I am unable to find this package. This is the command I am using “sudo apt-get install ros-$ROS_DISTRO-tf2-tools”

Has anyone else encountered this issue?

Hello @mchambliss ,

We will install this package so that it is available by default in the project. Meanwhile, you can execute the following commands to install it manually:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install ros-noetic-tf2-tools

Thanks. I was working on this rosject today, and had to install the tf2_tools. So it doesn’t seem to be available by default yet - just FYI.
