I have tried several combination of ROS and gazebo but unfortunatly there is still a problem somewhere in each version. I have ROS fuerte, groovy and Hydro on one system which I can switch through by sourcing different setup files.

If I run roslaunch gazeboworlds emptyworld_sdf.launch:

How can I debug this? There seem to be no variables set, echo $GAZEBO is empty. Should I source a file? If I try to source

 source /opt/ros/groovy/stacks/simulator_gazebo/gazebo/setup.bash
[rospack] Error: stack/package ogre not found

When the resource path is changed than this works. Paths:



Are these correct?

Did you ever find a solution to this?

Are you saying here that it worked when you switched to Gazebo 1.3 instead of 1.5? I don't understand what you mean by "changing the resource path".
