Hey guys,

I am still trying to get my gazebo and ros properly work together. But every time it fails because of urdf-spawning issues. So what I am trying or tried is following:

  • Install ROS-Indigo with sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-dekstop-full
  • Install Gazebo 2.2.2 from source (I tried a lot of branches already) as described here (tried with SDF 1.4, 1.4.11, 1.5, 2.0) I am also aware of this issue but I can't find there the ultimate solution o.O
  • Install Gazeborospkgs from debian (sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-gazebo-ros-pkgs ros-indigo-gazebo-ros-control).

So every time (it doesnt matter if I try with hector or turtlebot or husky or smthelse) the spawnmodel part of gazeboros will let my gazebo crash.

Am I missing something? Do I misunderstand something? I know this question was asked a lot and i already found some 'solutions' but nothing helped me so far.

And it seems that not all people here have problems with this, can you explain me your procedure to install everything so it works?

Thanks in advance

Is there a reason you install gazebo2 from source? Isn't it part of hydro-desktop-full? can you post the corresponding errors? have you looked at the log files in the ~/.gazebo/ dir
