Previously I was using rviz from sudo apt-get install ros-groovy-rviz and it encounters some error when I trying to view laser data. So I decided to git clone it and compile the version 1.9.35 of rviz. However, when I catkin_make the rviz it shows me the error below

At first I thought it was something to do with the image_transport package and so after I do source /opt/ros/groovy/setup.bash , I can rosrun image_transport but the error still remain the same. Do anyone know how to solve it? Thank you.

You can get the source code from git and check out branch 1.9.35. It's a patch to resolve this issue. Read more here.

cd ~/catkin_ws/src
git clone https://github.com/ros-visualization/rviz.git
cd rviz
git checkout 1.9.35
cd ../..
catkin_make

EDIT: If this doesn't work, it's likely that something went wrong with your ROS installation. You might want to try to reinstall ROS!

Note: I know the below isn´t a direct answer to your question, rather a workaround for your problem (rviz not working on groovy).

What you can do instead of compiling from source is just using the hydro rviz version. If you have space and bandwidth to spare, this should be faster and easier to make work than compiling yourself. To do so, perform the following steps:

Install rviz for hydro:

sudo apt-get install ros-hydro-rviz

In the terminal that you will use to start rviz, source hydro´s setup.bash:

source /opt/ros/hydro/setup.bash

Start rviz:

rosrun rviz rviz
