I just installed gazebo. Everything went fine but when I went to test it using the commands

roscore &

rosrun gazebo_ros gazebo

I got the error

[rosrun] Couldn't find executable named gazebo below


It's strange because tab completion still works and everything appears to be in the correct directories.

Thank you for any help

Did you build the package? And did you source source /opt/ros/hydro/setup.bash? Is there a executable in the bin directory of gazebo_ros?

It fixed itself when I restarted my computer. Thank you though!
