That's not a recent topic but I just let you know that gazebo works in Ubuntu 12.10 under VirtualBox. However, I was not able to make it run with a decent performance in Ubuntu 12.04.

Some extra notes:

  • Enable 3D Acceleration (On your host VirtualBox settings->Display->Video).
  • Install VirtualBox Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack.
  • Install the guest additions (Devices->Install Guest Additions)
  • Install the gnome-session-fallback package on your guest. Make sure you select this desktop when you log in the next time. The performance will be better compared with Unity.

I've tried with Gazebo 1.9.x and it is usable.

Enjoy!
