ICub Software Installation
This page contains detailed instructions for installing the iCub software.
The software can be compiled on different platform, however we support Windows, Linux (Debian/Ubuntu) and, to a certain extent Mac OS X. On Windows we support Visual Studio 8.0, 9.0 and 10.0, on Linux gcc.
For all systems you have the following choices:
- From pre-compiled binaries: quick installation of all the software, good if you don't want to compile or modify the software, allow experimenting with the robot, the simulator and writing code using the libraries.
- From sources: get the latest sources and compile the software. Download can be from git (good if you want to contribute to the repository and get the latest updates) or from one of the snapshots.
