Hi! I want to install baxter gazebo simulation on my laptop. I am currently using ROS kinetic and Gazebo 7. When I did 'catkin-make', I get the following error:

 [ 91%] Built target baxter_gazebo_ros_control
[ 92%] Built target baxter_sim_kinematics
[ 93%] Built target kinematics
[ 94%] Built target baxter_emulator

Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!

I am using Ubuntu 16.04 and I followed the tutorial here

Can you post the steps needed to reproduce your problem, including OS type and version? Also include links to documentation and tutorials that you were following.

Just to share the solution I could get from another website:

Thanks! Does it mean Anaconda contradict with our package? Is the solution working?

Yes. In my case, I could build successfully after I remove conda related paths from PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

You might be running into version problems. I think the baxter simulation environment requires Ubuntu 14.04:

You could try setting up a Docker container.

Thanks! But there is an instruction on how to install the simulation based on ROS kinetic. As far as I know kinetic is only available on Ubuntu 16.
