I am following this tutorial from the official Gazebo Web page.

When compiling the code using make, I get an error:

error: ‘gazebo::physics::WorldPtr {aka class boost::shared_ptr<gazebo::physics::World>}’ has no member named ‘Name’



Why isn't being found GetName() ?

The tutorial isn't updated, GetName() is deprecated. You need to use Name().

@michael1234, are you sure you're using Gazebo 8? Do you mind checking by running "gazebo --version"?

My bad, I am using Gazebo 9. I got confused because when I tried to install: 'sudo apt-get install libgazebo9' it doesn't exist. Is it okay to have Gazebo 9 with libgazebo8?

It would be safer to use matching versions. Thanks for all the reports about tutorials which need to be updated though, we should tackle these before the Gazebo 9 release in January. It would be great if you could ticket issues on Gazbeo tutorials: https://bitbucket.org/osrf/gazebo_tutorials/issues Even better if you make pull requests fixing the tutorials :)
