Hi. Gazebo crashes on my macbook everytime I run it. I can use it fine for maybe 15-20 minutes before it crashes. I am unsure what is causing it, and I've tried gazebo versions 7 and 8 too. This is the error I get:

Node::Advertise(): Error advertising a topic. Did you forget to start the discovery service?
Node::Advertise(): Error advertising a topic. Did you forget to start the discovery service?
Node::Advertise(): Error advertising a topic. Did you forget to start the discovery service?
escalating to SIGKILL on server

Any ideas? I'm thinking its because I'm using Intel integrated graphics? Thanks

I am facing the same problem but using Ubuntu 16.04. I just added a cube shape into the model editor and am trying to scale it graphically with the axis arrows... I can change the visual and collision geometries only by link inspector. The message is: Node::Advertise(): Error advertising a topic. Did you forget to start the discovery service?

Facing the same problem on Ubuntu 18.04. Unable to scale a simple cube shape using the model editor's GUI. Error message obtained on bash: Node::Advertise(): Error advertising a topic. Did you forget to start the discovery service?

Try commands $ killall -9 gzserver, $ killall -9 gzclient and $ killall -9 rosmaster; before every launch of Gazebo.
