Installation through the Virtual Box Appliance
We provide a virtual machine that comes with everything needed pre-installed to develop ROS2 applications using Papyrus for Robotics.
For this virtual machine, username is “user” and password is “p”. User “user” is allowed to use “sudo”. After logging in, you'll find a readme file with some additional links and videos on the desktop.
Alternatively, Papyrus for Robotics can be installed either in form of an RCP (a self contained Eclipse installation) or added to an existing Eclipse installation by using an update site. Both can be downloaded from eclipse.org/papyrus/components/robotics referring to the current 0.8 release.
- If you use the RCP, make sure that a JRE is already installed in your system and contained in the system PATH.
- If want to extend an existing Eclipse, add the update-site via Help->Install New Software->Add (release update-site (for 2020-06) or one of the nightly update sites below)
- Nightly builds with the latest changes are available on the Eclipse continuous integration server, see 2020-06 (nightly update site), and 2021-12 (nightly update site), 2021-12 (nightly RCP builds).

Behavior Tree Execution
In addition to ROS2, if you plan to use Papyrus for Robotics to execute task specifications in form of behavior trees, you need to install:
nav2_behavior_treepackage from Navigation2, including its dependencies (
behaviortree_cpp_v3). Build and Install Navigation2 explains how to get the complete framework on your machine.
