Hi, I'm trying the example found here. I cloned the gazebo_ros_demos in my /src. I've no problems with

roslaunch rrbot_description rrbot_rviz.launch

But when I try to launch RRBot to Gazebo with :

roslaunch rrbot_gazebo rrbot_world.launch

it appears this on my screen:

core service [/rosout] found
process[gazebo-1]: started with pid [3477]
process[gazebo_gui-2]: started with pid [3481]
process[urdf_spawner-3]: started with pid [3485]
Traceback (most recent call last):

log file: /home/gabriele/.ros/log/fd4ef6e0-cf48-11e5-a228-e839df8a64f0/urdf_spawner-3*.log

Gazebo starts, but rrbot doesn't appear neither in the world, nor in the model database. I'm not able to understand if the error is in the file (like rrbot_world.launch, or if I forgot to insert something in the bashrc file.

What am I missing here?

I found the problem. There was a compatibility problem: replacing mi 6.5 version of gazebo with the 5.2 version the problem disappears.

Thank you.

The traceback says that it couldn't find a module:

ImportError: No module named msg

Maybe you don't have the package gazebo_msgs. Try to check if ros_%YOUR_DISTRO_gazebo_msgs is installed in your machine.
