# Revision history [back]

That branch hasn't been touched in a long time, so I suspect the amount of effort to revive it would be non-trivial.

I haven't tried it, but the steps should go something like this:

1. Clone gazebo

hg clone http://bitbucket.org/osrf/gazebo
cd gazebo

2. Move to latest gazebo7 branch

hg up gazebo7

3. Merge in tape_measure. This is the tricky part, because you'll need to solve many conflicts

hg merge tape_measure

4. Then follow the usual installation process

mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..
make -j8
sudo make install


You'll probably need to tweak the code a few times until it builds successfully. Also note that the tape_measure branch has never been completed, so it may not work as expected. That said, if you get it to work, it would be great if you could contribute it back to the community!

Cheers
