I followed installation directions in http://gazebosim.org/tutorials?tut=in... and tried both one-liner and step-by-step options. However when I try to check if gazebo has been installed and run command gazebo, I get the following error:

gzserver: error while loading shared libraries: libdart-collision-bullet.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I have tried locating the lmissing library by running locate libdart-collision-bullet.so.6 and I get


I have also tried installing libdart from source but I get the same error. Would appreciate a solution to this issue.

Could you please run ldd $(which gzserver) | grep dart and find /usr . -name libdart-collision-bullet.so* and attach the output to the question? Thanks.
