I have been successfully using the erratic robot simulation in Gazebo (fuerte on ubuntu 12.04). I know this is not the recommended way to use Gazebo now, but I have been using simulator_gazebo 1.6.16 (I have just installed Gazebo 1.3).

I installed the erratic robot for simulation using:

sudo apt-get install ros-fuerte-erratic-robot

After some updates were installed (including python-rospkg, ros-fuerte-pr2-controllers, and ros-fuerte-pr2-mechanism) using the ubuntu update manager, I have not been able to launch Gazebo with the erratic robot.

For example, the output of

roslaunch erratic_navigation_apps demo_2dnav_slam.launch

(from (http://www.ros.org/wiki/simulator_gazebo/Tutorials/TeleopErraticSimulation)) is:

gazebo 1.3 is only available through groovy, can you try things out in groovy?

You mentioned that you installed Gazebo 1.3, but your posted output says you're actually running Gazebo 1.0:

Gazebo multi-robot simulator, version 1.0.2

As a side note, the Gazebo tutorials on ros.org are only applicable to Gazebo 1.0.

Thanks for responding and sorry for the confusing post. I have both installed (Gazebo 1.0 with Ros Fuerte and Gazebo 1.3 as stand alone). After a lack of progress with the problem described above with 1.0, I installed 1.3 to look into how practical it would be to move to using that version.

could you try to run things in groovy? If debbuild (http://www.ros.org/debbuild/groovy.html) finishes, simulator_gazebo 1.7.8 will have gazebo 1.3 in it.
