Webots is a free and open-source 3D robot simulator

Webots is a free and open-source 3D robot simulator. It allows you to create 3D simulation models of robots interacting with their environment through sensors and actuators. Libraries of robots, sensors, actuators and objects are provided, but you can create your own. Collision detections, rigid body dynamics and fluid dynamics rely on a modified version of the ODE physics engine. The robot controller programs can be written outside of Webots in C, C++, Python, ROS, Java or MATLAB using a simple API. Webots features a 3D web interface allowing you to publish simulations online.

Enable snaps on Kubuntu and install Webots

Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.

Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.

Enable snapd

If you’re running Kubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) or later, including Kubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver) and Kubuntu 18.10 (Cosmic Cuttlefish), you don’t need to do anything. Snap is already installed and ready to go.

Versions of Kubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf) don’t include snap by default, but snap can be installed from the command line as follows:

sudo apt update sudo apt install snapd
