Bullet is not a registered physics engine

I am attempting to run gazebo using bullet instead of ODE. I am using Gazebo 1.8 and have Bullet 2.81 installed. Simply running "gazebo -e bullet" returns "Error [] Unregistered physics engine [bullet], the default will be used instead.".

I also cannot load from the SDF file using <bullet> as a <physics> tag. Is there anything else I need to do to have a "registered" Bullet physics engine?

Is Bullet installed correctly? For me it looks like gazebo is trying to register Bullet but is not able to do so! You can install it from the OSRF-Repo name is libbullet-dev (Version should be 2.81).

You'll have to install Gazebo from source in order to activate Bullet support.
