Hi, I installed Gazebo 4.0 a couple of days ago and I've been trying to connect it with player. I have player/stage working already on my computer, so I don't have any idea what does this error message means (also "gzserver" doesn't respond). I will really appreciate it if someone could give me some guidance. Thank you in advance :)

I've just installed the latest svn version of player (3.1) and I'm still having the same error. I'm thinking maybe both aren't compatible somehow. Does anybody have player/gazebo-4.0 actually working?

See for the fix to this issue.

However, the Player interfaces in Gazebo are a little outdated. They require to be applied before they'll work.
