I am new to gazebo and following the tutorial from the official website. But i am stuck at Test The Mesh heading. I made the grass.world file and pasted the code given in tutorial.

And i also copied the duck.dae file along with the duck.png file in the same directory of the world files.

But when i run

gazebo /usr/share/gazebo-1.8/worlds/grass.world

It opens empty world and not shows any duck

(gazebo:5903): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "pixmap",

Error [SystemPaths.cc:370] File or path does not exist[""]

Error [Visual.cc:2069] No mesh specified

I dont know where i am going wrong, just following the tutoral.

Thanks in advance :)

It should work if you run gazebo from within the /usr/share/gazebo-1.8/worlds folder.

The issue is that grass.world is referring a the my_mesh.dae resource, but Gazebo can't find that resource. You could also specify a complete file URI for the mesh:

Thankyou so very much :) While trying i also used full path but using 2 forward-slashes only... Here you had 3 so when i tried this way... It showed me the duck :) Thanks again :)
