I am getting a building error when installing from source under ubuntu 12.04.

The error:

gazebo-2.2.1/interfaces/player/player.h:22:38: fatal error: libplayercore/playercore.h: No such file or directory

the header file is located here:


Same error appears for older versions as well, such as 1.8.0.

The command sudo apt-get remove libplayer* did not fixed it for me, as in the following answer.

Also, under ubuntu 12.04 sudo apt-get install libogre-1.8-dev does not work, maybe the install tutorials should be updated?


here is the issue on bitbucket

have you tried using deb for installation. Deb package for version 2.2.1 is available as well !

thanks for the answer, the deb works just fine, I just needed the source installation ;)
