Hello, I am trying to install gazebo in Debian Jessie from source. Can I follow the same steps mentioned in the tutorial for installing Gazebo from source in Ubuntu ?

Also is it possible to make gazebo package available for Debian Jessie ? I checked and found that gazebo7 package is available only for Stretch(testing) and Sid(Unstable).

Cheers .. Nirmal

I'm afraid that currently (July 2016) Debian Jessie is not a supported distribution by the general OSRF released packages although we try to feed Debian Sid with the latest released packages using the official Debian repositories and procedures.

As an exception, you can find in the OSRF repository the version 7 of Gazebo since ROS Kinetic supported Debian Jessie for the first time. I did not test it but something like the following instructions should work:

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb jessie main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/gazebo-stable.list'
wget -O - | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install libgazebo7-dev gazebo7
