I have gazebo 10 installed on Ubuntu 16, did not install ROS as we plan to apply Reinforcement Learning to learn the control in the simulated environment.

When I applied force/efforts on any joints in the PR2, none of them move. But the same mechanism of joint.SetForce works for R2 and Pioneer2DX, I looked at PR2 simulator code in ROS, in the end, it seems also call joint.SetForce.

I am really confused, anyone knows how I could get PR2 moving in Gazebo only environment??

Without further details/seeing your code, it is difficult to tell what might be the problem.
