Can you add `--verbose` after `gazebo` to see what errors are printed? Also, is `velodyne.world` in the home directory (the one you're at)?

#chapulina Thank you for answering. when I add '--verbose' I couldn't see any error. Also velodyne,world is exactly in the home directory.

How did you install Gazebo? Also, what models are listed under the `Models` tab on the left pane?

What do you get printed into terminal if you run "echo $GAZEBO_MODEL_PATH"? If you look at this location, are there models `sun` and `ground_plane`?

Fun fact. If you write following command >$ gazebo nonexistent.world < the gazebo client will start with an empty world without any error. Are you sure your velodyne.world is located at some place gazebo can find it? Try running the command from the folder where the velodyne.world is located.
