I'm trying to import a model with a texture on it. I developed it with Autodesk 3Ds Max, with a .gif file as the texture. Both the dae file and the .gif are colocated in the same directory. I believe the .gif is correctly referenced in the .dae file.

Here is the definintion of the first couple of lines of the .dae file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<COLLADA xmlns="" version="1.4.1">
  <asset><contributor><author></author><authoring_tool>FBX COLLADA exporter</authoring_tool><comments></comments></contributor><created>2014-11-13T11:33:17Z</created><keywords></keywords><modified>2014-11-13T11:33:17Z</modified><revision></revision><subject></subject><title></title><unit meter="0.001000" name="centimeter"></unit><up_axis>Y_UP</up_axis></asset>
    <image id="Map #19-image" name="Map #19"><init_from>./4x4_384_73.gif</init_from></image>
    <material id="Material #57" name="Material #57">
      <instance_effect url="#Material #57-fx"/>
    <effect id="Material #57-fx" name="Material #57">
        <technique sid="standard">
              <color sid="emission">0.000000  0.000000 0.000000 1.000000</color>
              <color sid="ambient">0.588000  0.588000 0.588000 1.000000</color>
              <texture texture="Map #19-image" texcoord="CHANNEL0">
                  <technique profile="MAYA">
                    <wrapU sid="wrapU0">TRUE</wrapU>
                    <wrapV sid="wrapV0">TRUE</wrapV>

The file on the 5th line <init_from>./4x4_384_73.gif</init_from> is where I reference the file for the texture and its is used further down as a texture.

The error I'm getting from gazebo is:

[INFO] [WallTime: 1415881614.977695] [0.090000] Spawn status: SpawnModel: Successfully spawned model

Has anyone successfully spawned a model with this type of file in this way? Any help would be appreciated. It is with Gazebo 1.9 as per the Hydro install.

cheers Peter

I had been running the spawning process without graphics card support. When enabling graphics card through the "optirun" prefix (a purely Nvidia on Ubuntu solution) the mesh is displayed correctly.
