When "..\configure" is run for the gazebo directory ie the 3rd time a build error occurs:

Missing: libqwt-dev. Required for plotting

I cannot see qwt in the install list has anyone any ideas?

Hi, Which version of gazebo did you use ?


Try the fork: I managed to compile gazebo 7.1 on Windows using Visual Studio Community 12 (2013) using this fork, but it really depends on so many things that I can't help you more than that.

Good luck

Thank you Pierre, I will try that.

Hi Pierre, I have used your fork and after running ..\configure several times the nmake instruction does not work, but an sln file has been created. I have opened this solution and built it in VS. It is missing altimeter.pb.h where might I find that?

Running the install project in MinSizeRel configuration seems to fix that.

Hi happy it works! Indeed I configured the thing to work with Visual Studio and not the command-lined nmake. About altimeter I remember having this error but not how to fix it. But in a general way, I remember that only Release worked. Good luck

The wiki with instructions is a bit outdated. It says it is for building gazebo 6.

I now successfully build gazebo8 branch with a few modifications.

The package you need is at:

Generally, it's useful to poke around and look there for the missing dependencies.

Also the Qt version is wrong in the instructions for gazebo8. I have Qt 5.7 in folder C:\Qt5\5.7\msvc2013_64 and then it works.

Second sentence is the critical one here: " It does not actually work yet."
