I've already asked in ros answer but didn't received any answer (http://answers.ros.org/question/168156/gazebo-crashes-when-spawning-a-robot-with-urdf/). Thus, I try it here again.

I'm looking forward to use ROS Indigo with the fresh released Ubuntu 14.04. Gazebo is starting fine but instantly crashes when spawning a robot via service call:

(indigo) alex@ThinkPad-T440p:~/hector$ rosrun gazebo_ros spawn_model -file `rospack find baxter_description`/urdf/baxter.urdf -urdf -z 1 -model baxter
spawn_model script started

Service call failed: transport error completing service call: unable to receive data from sender, check sender's logs for details

Lets Gazebo crash without any message:

[gazebo-1] process has died [pid 14649, exit code 139, cmd /opt/ros/indigo/lib/gazebo_ros/gzserver worlds/empty.world __name:=gazebo __log:=/home/alex/.ros/log/cdde1b80-e1a0-11e3-ab05-5c514ff707c4/gazebo-1.log].
log file: /home/alex/.ros/log/cdde1b80-e1a0-11e3-ab05-5c514ff707c4/gazebo-1*.log

I've just tested it with Gazebo 2.2.2 (sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-gazebo-ros) using "emptyworld" and the Baxter robot urdf (see gazebosim.org /Tutorials/1.9/UsingroslaunchFilestoSpawnModels, sry not enough Karma for links ;)).

Has anybody encountered this issue too?

kind regards, Alex

I've tried your solution to install gazebo_models manually. It seems to ease the issue, but didn't solve it completely. I'm still getting this failure sometimes.

I'm actually trying to install ROS Indigo on an Ubuntu 14.04 machine.

Starting Gazebo ends up in most cases with (4 of 5):

Msg Waiting for masterError [Connection.cc:787] Getting remote endpoint failed
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'boost::exception_detail::clone_impl<boost::exception_detail::error_info_injector<boost::system::system_error> >'
  what():  remote_endpoint: Transport endpoint is not connected

what always ends in:

[gazebo_gui-2] process has died [pid 30325, exit code 134, cmd /opt/ros/indigo/lib/gazebo_ros/gzclient __name:=gazebo_gui __log:=/home/alex/.ros/log/cdde1b80-e1a0-11e3-ab05-5c514ff707c4/gazebo_gui-2.log].
log file: /home/alex/.ros/log/cdde1b80-e1a0-11e3-ab05-5c514ff707c4/gazebo_gui-2*.log

Currently Gazebo 2.2.2 is used which comes via

sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-gazebo-ros

I'm starting Gazebo with

roslaunch gazebo_ros empty_world.launch

This error occurs on both nvidia and intel graphics. Thus, it seems to be independent from hardware.

Has anybody ideas what is going wrong here?

kind regards, Alex
