I'm doing a Gazebo based simulator, I have some restrictions (I have to use Ros Fuerte), so I'm using Ubuntu 12 and Gazebo 4 (I saw here that it was the last compatible with Ubuntu Precise).

I'm not able to generate any Ros topics from my cameras or other sensors, only see them using the gz topics: gzserver --verbose gz topic -v /gazebo/default/camlens_left/left_camera/image (I need to pass this to a ROS topic).

My question is, is there any way to interact between Ros Fuerte and Gazebo 4 or do I have to use the first version of Gazebo and rewrite my models and world?

You can use ROS with Gazebo. Take a look at these tutorials.

yes i know question was a bit more specific, ROS FUERTE and Gazebo 4. I think i can only use gazebo 1.0 with this version of ROS ...

The second tutorial in the link I provided discusses ROS + Gazebo versions. Have you read through that tutorial and tried to get gazebo4 working with ROS Fuerte?

yes, I have gazebo4 installed and working standalone, I can also see the gazebo topics, however I cant create a working node that connects gazebo4 with ros. when I launch my node it starts a gazebo 1.0 server. I need full integration for several sensors and actuators, the best solution is to update the rest of the system instead of using that old version Ros, the whole project will be up to date :). Ros Indigo will be the solution :)
