Is there any way to install ROS on Elementary OS Loki?

I found on the internet a tutorial step by step for Freya, but I only managed to have installable packages with dependency problems :/

  • What is ROS? If this is ROS, can you try that guide? It should work since Loki is based on Xenial

  • Yes, that's the one. Unfortunately when I try this guide it returns me an error while installing ros-kinetic-desktop-full - no package error.

  • Check what packages are avaliable with apt-cache search ros-kinetic

Based on the tutorial suggested by Maccer:

# Setup your sources.list
sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://packages.ros.org/ros/ubuntu xenial main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list'
# Set up your keys
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://ha.pool.sks-keyservers.net:80 --recv-key 5523BAEEB01FA116
# Install the package(s) wanted.
sudo apt update
sudo apt install ros-kinetic-desktop-full

I solved the problem just following the shadow-fixed instructions and changing in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list ros for ros-shadow-fixed. After that when I install ros-kinetic-desktop-full (not ros-kinetic-my-just-released-package!) it does not give me error anymore.
