I have been struggling to get the volcano.world demo working. It keeps giving me this error:

Error [parser_urdf.cc:2857] Unable to load file[/tmp/volcano.world]. Error [parser.cc:278] parse as old deprecated model file failed.

I'm not very experienced with gazebo or linux and would appreciate any help.

Also, is there a repository of world templates that can be used. I need to produce a small area with lake and a few hills.

Please check that the file already exists in your system by running:

[[ -f /tmp/volcano.world ]] && echo "Yes, the file exists"

If it exists, be sure of running gazebo with the GAZEBO_RESOURCE_PATH variable pointing to /tmp:

GAZEBO_RESOURCE_PATH="$GAZEBO_RESOURCE_PATH:/tmp" gazebo /tmp/volcano.world
