Please I will like to know how to install Gazebo 7.4.0

When I follow the instructions for installing gazebo7, I noticed that only 7.14.0

I need this specific version because I am transferring my simulations so that they can be run in a singularity container (to be run on HPC). However, my robot models and plugins developed in Gazebo 7.4.0 do not run as expected on version 7.14.0.

So I will need version 7.4.0 for fare comparison of new results I intend to get from running the simulations in a container with what I already have from previous simulations on my local machine.

I realise that the reason why my simulation was giving weird results is because there is a difference between how Gazebo 7.4.0 and 7.14.0 interprete details in the SDF tags. Specifically, within the <surface> tag. I removed the surface tag entirely and my simulation seems to work fine. However, this does not answer the main question in the post, which is how I can install Gazebo 7.4.0

The history of all Gazebo releases is kept here on bitbucket:

Specifically, for 7.4.0, here are the various download options:




It sounds like you've installed Gazebo enough times that you know how to install it once you've got the right version downloaded.

Best of luck running this on HPC! Hopefully that'll make a cool blog post one day that I can read :)
