I'm assuming you're using a non-NIVIDIA graphics chipset.

Gazebo seems to work best with NVIDIA graphics cards. That is because it was tested against NVIDIA graphics cards in development.


Some thing you can try: 1) Ctrl-C roslaunch window, then roslaunch again (repeat) (this would work most of the time for me using an AMD graphics card).

2) Install updates

$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get upgrade

3) Use the proprietary driver for your graphics card (if available) image description

4) Get a NVIDIA graphics card - an older-ish one is fine. You're only using it to render the scene.
