I'm attempting to do a manual install of a lower version of gazebo for a specific work environment.

Since I was working on a blank Ubuntu OS that never had gazebo installed. I first used sudo apt-get install gazebo,then sudo apt-get remove gazebo to keep the dependencies, but not the up-to-date version.

However, when I try to install the package I want, it goes like this:

sudo dpkg -i gazebo1.7.3-1~preciseamd64.deb Selecting previously unselected package gazebo. (Reading database ... 188459 files and directories currently installed.) Unpacking gazebo (from gazebo1.7.3-1~preciseamd64.deb) ... dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of gazebo: gazebo depends on libbullet; however: Package libbullet is not installed. dpkg: error processing gazebo (--install): dependency problems - leaving unconfigured Processing triggers for desktop-file-utils ... Processing triggers for bamfdaemon ... Rebuilding /usr/share/applications/bamf.index... Processing triggers for gnome-menus ... Errors were encountered while processing: gazebo

Apparently, there is still one dependency that wasn't added. How do I go about installing libbullet?

Just to clarify. sudo apt-get install libbullet-dev did not work.

Looks like a problem with the libbullet version needed by gazebo.

While ubuntu ships 2.80, gazebo uses 2.81, so you will need to install debs from the OSRF repository. Two ways:

Right, but you have mixed the methods. Only with download and dpkg -i should be enough, you don't need to setup the repository if you are not going to use apt-get install to get the packages.

I get this statement: The following packages have unmet dependencies: gazebo : Depends: libbullet but it is not going to be installed libbullet-dev : Depends: libbullet (= 2.81-2ppa1~precise) but it is not going to be installed
