[ros-users] install individual ros packages - urdf / kdl

You can install any stack individually.  The urdf parsing is in the
robot_model stack and kdl is in the geometry stack.

Both are in the boxturtle base installation which doesn't pull anything pr2
specific.  See http://www.ros.org/wiki/ROS/Installation/Ubuntu

If you want a truly minimal set you can pull only the stacks up to that
level. To do that I recommend trimming the boxturtle base rosinstall file at
http://ros.org/rosinstalls/boxturtle_base.rosinstall to only have the
following stacks

$ rosstack depends robot_model

However I would recommend just pulling the boxturtle base install

And if you're on Ubuntu you could also use the debian based install and just
install ros-boxturtle-robot-model package.
