Hi I am running ROS Noetic in Ubuntu 20.04. I have done the full-desktop installation to install gazebo.

The output of gazebo --version is:

Gazebo multi-robot simulator, version 11.10.2

I came here because I was unable to solve this issue. The ROS answers moderators suggested me this channel. My issue is totally described in ROS answers, as well as the approaches we took to solve it:

Could you please take a look and help me figure out the issue related to?

The moderator was able to use my xacro with success in his machine, just using other meshes...however, I have used other meshes as well as other geometries to a collision such as cylinders and boxes (instead of the meshes). However, in my case, the wheel link and the left wheel joint are not created.

The funny part is that it is the link and joint that are created in Rviz...then in conclusion is not an issue of xacro but maybe from Gazebo? it is strange that worked in the moderator's gazebo...Some suggestion? Reinstallation of Gazebo should work?

Thanks in advance!
