I have installed gazebo 1.9 and gazeborospkgs successfully following the instructions in the tutorials both installed from source and I am running ros groovy. And I tested gazebo using this command : rosrun gazebo_ros gazebo , and it run successfully as well. But the problem is when I want to run gazebo standalone with my world file as usual without ros integration as following “gazebo “

Even though there is no other gazebo running I get this error :Exception [] Unable to start server[Address already in use]. There is probably another Gazebo process running.

Any solutions for this error! Thanks in advance!

Try restarting your computer and run gazebo --verbose if u still face the issue then one of the cause could be that some docker container running in background is running gazebo. So you need to close the docker container running gazebo.

In my case it was a docker container running in background.
