I'm trying to learn gazebo by following the tutorials and i got stuck on this one : http://gazebosim.org/tutorials?cat=gu...

On step 5, when i run make, i'm getting the following

    charles@A530-10l:~/velodyne_plugin/build$ make
[ 50%] Building CXX object CMakeFiles/velodyne_plugin.dir/velodyne_plugin.cc.o
In file included from /usr/include/gazebo-7/gazebo/gazebo_core.hh:21:0,
                 from /usr/include/gazebo-7/gazebo/gazebo.hh:20, 
        from /home/charles/velodyne_plugin/velodyne_plugin.cc:4:

    compilation terminated.

        make[1]: *** [CMakeFiles/velodyne_plugin.dir/all] Error 2
    Makefile:83: recipe for target 'all' failed
    make: *** [all] Error 2

I'm running Gazebo 7.9, on Ubuntu 16.04 with Ros Kinetic. The problem seems to be with the ignition/math/Inertial.hh header-file that do not exist... When i do locate Inertial.hh. I get the following /usr/include/gazebo-7/gazebo/physics/Inertial.hh.

Any idea??

Thanks Charles

Hi Charles, I have the same Problem using gazebo. Did you solve the problem? I created a new Gazebo Model PlugIn and when I try catkin build, I get the same error. Thanks!

The missing header is from the Ignition Math library, not the one from Gazebo physics.

I recommend you clean up your installation and install Gazebo again (the latest version is 7.14, so you're a few behind). That should also pull in the correct Ignition Math version.
