I have installed from source gazebo7 in a workpace. I would like to work with ros, so I suppose I need to install gazeb7_ros_pkgs in the same workspace. My ros distribution is Indigo

The osrf repository with gazebo7_ros_pkgs is:

And I am trying to use git clone -b to download the package to my workspace /src folder but I do not what branch I have to select to obtain the source to be compiled for Indigo.

Any help? Thanks

The github repository that you mention is not the one hosting the gazebo_ros_pkgs code but all kind of metadata related to the release of binary .debs for the gazebo_ros_pkgs. You probably want the upstream repository:

I would recommend the read of Installing gazebo_ros_pkgs tutorial which cover how to install Jade/Indigo versions of gazebo_ros_pkgs into a catkin workspace.

Update: There are Indigo gazebo7_ros_pkgs available as packages. Please read:

No, this doesn't work. That upstream directory depends on gazebo2, I tried.
