Hi all,

I've been going through the gazebo control tutorial and I'm working on the baxter which I got by adding

<node name="spawn_urdf" pkg="gazebo_ros" type="spawn_model" args="-file $(find baxter_description)/urdf/baxter.urdf -urdf -z 1 -model baxter"/>

in my launch file. The error that comes up is

Error [Plugin.hh:138] Failed to load plugin cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Does anyone know where this plugin can be found or downloaded? Thanks in advance.

It is part of the baxter_simulator package. It is not currently publicly available. See the installation instructions, which recommend to send an email to with some specific information in order to request access.
