I'm trying to downgrade from Gazebo 4 to Gazebo 3 and make it work with ROS Indigo. I'm using the following steps:

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb `lsb_release -cs` main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/gazebo-latest.list'
wget -O - | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ros-$distro-gazebo4-ros-pkgs

The problem is that I get the message "E: Unable to locate package ros-indigo-gazebo3-ros-pkgs". What am I doing wrong in the steps I'm using?

UPDATE: Does the package ros-indigo-gazebo3-ros-pkgs actually exist?

There is no ros-indigo-gazebo3-ros-pkgs. Can you say what problem exists in Gazebo 4 that makes you want to downgrade?

You can install the gazebo3 package and build gazebo_ros_pkgs from source on trusty.

Try installing libgazebo-dev as well

Excellent, thank you both. Sorry for the repeated comments. Something went wrong with the network on my end.
