Loading heightmap.world fails in gazebo7

Hi All,

I'm having some problems loading the following worlds in the gazebo-7 package: worlds/heightmap.world worlds/heightmap_dem.world

as in:

$ gazebo worlds/heightmap.world

My GAZEBO_MODEL_PATH is pointed at /usr/share/gazebo-7

Gazebo fails to load any splash screen and returns straight back to command prompt. When I add --verbose no relevant information is provided.

My Gazebo was installed from the gazebo-7-ros-packages and works correctly otherwise.

is this a common problem as I have not been able to load other heightmaps of my own either.

Maybe the necessary libraries are not installed. From this tutorial, maybe you need to install these?

sudo apt-get install gdal-bin libgdal-dev libgdal1h python-gdal
