Yes I have had the same problem.

It is the libcwiid that comes with ROS Electric that is the problem. You can solve it be doing the following:

install libcwiid1 and libcwiid-dev with synaptic or apt.

go to

/opt/ros/electric/stacks/joystick_drivers/cwiid/cwiid/lib/

remove or rename

libcwiid.so libcwiid.so.1 libcwiid.so.1.0

Create the following symbolic links with “sudo ln -s”

libcwiid.so -> /usr/lib/libcwiid.so libcwiid.so.1 -> /usr/lib/libcwiid.so.1 libcwiid.so.1.0 -> /usr/lib/libcwiid.so.1.0

example: sudo ln -s libcwiid.so /usr/lib/libcwiid.so

This will solve your problem.
