Given that I had two version of gazebo now ,2.0 and 5.0.

When I want to execute gazebo-5.0.0 (typing : ./usr/local/gazebo5/bin/gazebo-5.0.0) ,it turned out that gazebo-2.0 is called

But if I execute gzserver and gzclient separately, correct version ( aka gzserver-5.0 and gzclient 5.0)are called.

"which" command output https://www.dropbox.com/s/1gnjq42j3p18ibk/rjIevpxFHLAxL-xlucwk_0z6laQFKI3zUz4ddXuA0og.png?dl=0

I have checked the shared library linked to gazebo-5.0.0,and their version are correct.

How can I deal with this problem? Thank you!

hello, here is my output


Thank you, this line does work!



but, I don't understand when I simply change into /usr/local/gazebo/bin and entering "./gazebo", I can't make a success?

Could you please edit the question and include the output of: which gazebo, which gzserver, which gzclient. ldd output is not really useful in this case.

Looks like you have many installation of gazebo present in your system. I'm assuming that you have gazebo2 installed from packages, into /usr, and gazebo5 into /usr/local/gazebo5. Why do you have gazebo executables into /usr/local/bin? Could you please attach also: find /usr -name 'gz*' -o -name 'gazebo'. Also, what happen if you run: PATH="/usr/local/gazebo5/bin:${PATH}" gazebo?

When installing gazebo in non default paths (looks like yours is /usr/local/gazebo5) it is necessary to source the correct setup.sh, so environment variables are modified according to work with non default paths.

Did you run:

source /usr/local/gazebo5/share/setup.sh

before running gazebo?

Could you please edit the question and include the output of: `which gazebo`, `which gzserver`, `which gzclient`.
