I follow this doc pr2_2dnav_slam.

And I run:

 roslaunch pr2_gazebo pr2_empty_world.launch
 rosrun pr2_tuckarm tuck_arms.py -r t -l t
 export ROBOT=sim
 roslaunch pr2_2dnav_slam pr2_2dnav.launch

It showed the error:

I've a similar problem: "[ERROR] [1391230904.750994442, 395.739000000]: Extrapolation Error: Unable to lookup transform, cache is empty, when looking up transform from frame [/odom_combined] to frame [/map]". Maybe take a look at the tf tree using "rosrun tf view_frames"

If exporting the robot variable isn't happening in your launch files, you should probably do that first. Have you tried setting the rosparameter "use_sim_time" to true? It looks like a synchronization issue which I usually see when either two computers communicating by ROS aren't synchronized or I've forgotten to use the simulated time. Good luck.

I try to run: rosparam set use_sim_time true; but without luck.
