I'm not sure if it's a Gazebo question, might be a ROS one, but here it goes. I'm following the gazebo tutorials, specifically that one:"Tutorial: Using roslaunch to start Gazebo, world files and URDF models", I've done all what it says until the point that I have to open gazebo with the baxter robot using this command:

rosrun gazebo_ros spawn_model -file rospack find baxter_description/urdf/baxter.urdf -urdf -z 1 -model baxter

Well, before that I downloaded the archive and save in my workspace then doing catkin_make, no problems until here. The thing is that when run it this message appears:

And after that nothing happens, that's the problem, I've waited for several minutes and nothing. So, I may think that there's something wrong or I've mistaken. Suggestions?

I found the answer by myself. I had to source the setup.bash of ROS first to open Gazebo, then source the setup.bash of my package in an other terminal to spawn the model but now there's a new problem :(.
