I have installed ROS groovy on Ubuntu 12.10, 64 bits.

I have also installed drcsim 2.6 with "Compiling from source" tutorial.

The problem is:

-WHen I tried to open the ATLAS robot model with:

. /usr/local/share/drcsim/

roslaunch atlas_utils atlas.launch

-I get the following errors:

Setting /run_id to e1eda8dc-c984-11e2-8837-003067bb0d9a

process[rosout-1]: started with pid [4369]

started core service [/rosout]

gazebo: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object

How can I solve this problem?

Looks like your loader is not looking for libraries /usr/local/lib. Two options:


    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
  2. Configure your system to always look in /usr/local/lib. Start by looking in /etc/

You'll know that it works when this command gives no output:

ldd `which gazebo` | grep "not found"

I chose the option number 1. And now I get a different error:

Error [Param.hh:249] Unable to set value [1,0471975511965976] for key[horizontal_fov]

Error [Param.hh:249] Unable to set value [0,100000001] for key[near]

[gazebo-2] process has finished cleanly

That looks like a locale issue (error interpreting commas as decimal separators). Try setting `LANG="C"` or `LANG="en_US"`.
