I have installed gazebo simulator using the ROS installation (ros-indigo-desktop-full) Gazebo 2.2.3 was installed alongside. When I run


The gazebo server connects to master and everything is fine

Gazebo multi-robot simulator, version 2.2.3 Copyright (C) 2012-2014 Open Source Robotics Foundation. Released under the Apache 2 License.

Msg Waiting for master Msg Connected to gazebo master @ Msg Publicized address: MY.IP.ADDRESS.NUMBER

In a new terminal I run


And I get the following error

Error [] Unable to create selection buffer. Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Couldn't find a solution anywhere. Ideas?

Hello, I have segmentation fault problems with gazebo, too. Im using archlinux and the update from boost-libs 1.59 to boost-libs 1.60 broke my gazebo setup =(. Although I downgraded back to boost-libs 1.59 the setup is still broken. It seems that my gazebo setup requires boost-libs in version 1.59 and in version 1.60. Has someone the similar problems with gazebo?
