Hi. I followed GUI overlay tutorial "Display Simulation Time". When launching Gazebo no GUI overlay appears, and following error is printed in the terminal:

[Err] [Plugin.hh:180] Failed to load plugin /.../ undefined symbol: _ZN5QTest18lastMouseTimestampE [Err] [] Unable to create gui overlay plugin with filename[]

The other tutorial "Spawn spheres" results in similar error

I am using Gazebo 9.0.0 Ubuntu 18.04 LTS Qt version 5.9.5

This issue is apparently not publicly visible :/

I installed Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, and now this problem is gone, GUI overlays works as expected.

Now there is this weird behavior in model editor, when resizing shapes (In previous setup with ubuntu 18.04 it worked just fine ), but since i don't need to use model editor, it's not a problem.

Hi guys,

I am working with gazebo 9 on Ubuntu 16.04. I have just installed it through this command: curl -sSL | sh

I have tried both of your solutions and none of them is working for me.

Do you have an idea how to fix this issue ?

Here's a pull request fixing Gazebo's built-in plugins:

For custom plugins, the quickest solution is to add ${Qt5Test_LIBRARIES} to the link libraries, or to remove #include <gazebo/gui/gui.hh> and include specific headers instead.
