I installed Graspit! for Diamondback from apt and it works fine. Now i would like to use the provided graspit_interface plugin. According to this post, there should be a graspit_interface node for starting the simulator with a containing ROS node but in my install the package only compiles a shared library Could somebody with some experience with this tool maybe elaborate a bit on how to start/use the plugin or maybe provide some lines of code illustrating how to interact with it from within a ROS node?

Thanks, -Robert-
