I saw some posts like: and also at tutorial: it is written that PR2 is not supported in gazebo for Hydro.

Has there been any update on this? Is it supported on Indigo?

P.S. I am coming to ROS after long time (more than a year), and want to simulate PR2 in a simulated home environment. Just wanted to know should I put my effort on Hydro or Indigo? Or something earlier.

Hi it seems like there are new packages for hydro!

the debian package is called


you can start the pr2 with the command:

roslaunch pr2_gazebo pr2_empty_world.launch

but I have just found it right now and tested it, this packages seems to use the normal 1.9.5 version of gazebo...

Hi, I am not able to install ros-hydro-pr2-gazebo (in Hydro) "The following packages have unmet dependencies: ros-hydro-pr2-gazebo : Depends: gazebo but it is not going to be installed Depends: ros-hydro-pr2-gazebo-plugins but it is not going to be installed" is the error I get.

This error seems to appear when you mix up the packages from gazebo and ros package list. Mayb you should just try to compile it from source...
