I have a launch file which uses a python script for my simulation, it launches fine, however when I try to implement any of the functions in the simulation, the script continues to crash.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/david/DRC-Scratch-Repo/qual_task_1_bdi/scripts/", line 674, in <module>

My friend who has an older version of drcsim(1.7) says it runs fine. But when I tried to install the older version after removing my own I got this from this command.

sudo apt-get install drcsim=1.7

E: version 1.7 for drcsim was not found.

So my issue is this, how do I properly install an older version of drcsim, or how can I modify the script to keep it from crashing?

This issue can also be followed on

where the script code is available

Issue resolved, downloaded directly from site instead and used the terminal to unpack it.
