Hi everybody,

I have a gui plugin which is so similar to one in gui overlay tutorial. the issue is when I use that plugin the widgets which is a button is not visible. Before I was over gazebo 7 and it was invisible but if I click on its location it works. I searched and I found there was a bug there and it is solved on gazebo 8. Now I am on gazebo 8 but the widget is not visible nor it doesn't do anything if I click on its location.

EDIT: I switched again to gazebo 7 and I noticed the gui plugin is not loaded in gazebo8. I print something in constructor, I can see it in gazebo 7 but not in gazebo8. everything is same and the only difference is gazebo version.

Anybody knows how can I solve that?

Thanks in advance!

I believe this was a known bug which was fixed on the latest release of Gazebo 8. Could you check your exact version? And try sudo apt upgrade?
