I am running Gazebo 1.9.1 on Ubuntu 12.04 x64. When running gazebo as a stand alone from the command line, I get the following:

gazebo: symbol lookup error: gazebo: undefined symbol: _ZN6gazebo6common9find_fileERKSs

I have uninstalled and reinstalled gazebo, to no avail. Anyone have any insight into this issue?

Chances are you have old executables libraries floating around on your system.

Uninstall gazebo. Then make sure there are no libgazebo* and that the gazebo, gzserver, and gzclient executable are not present.

Then run:

  1. sudo apt-get update

  2. sudo apt-get install gazebo

  3. which gzserver should return /usr/bin/gzserver

  4. 'ls -l /usr/bin/gzservershould point to/usr/bin/gzserver-1.9.6`
