I recently installed ROS KINETIC under Ubuntu 16.04 LTS for a course in Robotics I am taking.
One of the course projects requires the use of said package to parse a URDF file.
The CMAKE for the project failed, unable to find this package. The ROS WIKI seems to state that the package is maintained and released for Kinetic. I could not find the package under my ROS installation.
Any suggestions / advice ?

GitHub Sources for urdfdom:
I have ros-kinetic-urdfdom-py 0.3.3 available in my apt cache, with repo:
deb http://packages.ros.org/ros/ubuntu xenial main
Run apt update and double-check your sources list.
Thanks for your prompt answer. Sorry for posting my question here - it’s my first question in ROS, and it seems an appropriate place…
Anyhow, I cloned this package from its formal git repo into my catkin workspace and after some tweaking it compiles fine.
