So I'm trying to spawn the Baxter urdf in Gazebo 1.9 the standard way following the online tutorial but I keep getting this error.

[INFO] [WallTime: 1406710618.379330] [0.000000] Loading model xml from file [INFO] [WallTime: 1406710618.383029] [0.000000] Waiting for service /gazebo/spawnurdfmodel [INFO] [WallTime: 1406710618.450412] [0.000000] Calling service /gazebo/spawnurdfmodel Service call failed: service [/gazebo/spawnurdfmodel] responded with an error:

Unhandled exception in thread started by sys.excepthook is missing lost sys.stderr

I get this^ in the terminal window where I put the rosrun command in:

rosrun gazeboros spawnmodel -file catkinws/src/baxtercommon/baxter_description/urdf/baxter.urdf -urdf -z 1 -model baxter

And I get the outputs below in the terminal window where roslaunch was run.

[rospack] Error: stack/package baxterdescription not found I have run source ~/catkinws/devel/setup.bash when I realised this might be it but it wasn't the problem. And gazebo is definitely running.

Any help would be fantastic. Thanks

can you move to the directory by typing roscd baxter_description? It looks like this package is not installed correctly...

Thanks evilBiber. That was the problem, I didn't do make build for some stupid reason.Thanks a lot.
