ROS melodic with python 3.8


It would be nice if someone could help me to setup ROS melodic with python 3.8. Im constantly crushing my environments by trying it. Currently I have set it up with python 2.7 and tried using virtual envs but somehow I dont get it fully working.

Best regards,


My recommendation would actually be to adapt your system to work with ROS melodic and its default Python, or install Noetic which works with python3.

If you already have python 2 in a virtual environment but is still not fully working, then there is dependency resolution work left.

You could try running a Docker container with whatever system specification you need, check out the available dockers here.
