Hi All,

I am trying to make Gazebo work with player and was going trying to go through the examples but every time I try open player I get the following error. Player has been working fine for me with stage so far. I am only having problems with Gazebo.

error : Failed to load plugin libgazeboplayer. error : libtool reports error: file not found error : plugin search path: /home/fahad/Spider:.:/usr/local/lib64/ error : failed to load plugin: libgazeboplayer error : failed to parse config file camera.cfg driver blocks

Gazebo does detect that player is installed. Any one else has encountered the same problem?

The binary gazebo .deb was built without Player support, so it doesn't have the player plugin library. It seems like a good idea to start building Player support into the .deb. I created a ticket for that.

I have tried building the installation from tar ball instead of using the Ubuntu binaries and it seems to be working now. At least player is now recognizing the installation.

That makes sense; building from source with Player installed will trigger the build of the Player plugin. As noted in my answer, we'll start building the Gazebo .debs with Player support.

Thanks. I am also facing the problem that I get errors when I try to compile any player program. None of the functions are recognized.
