Dear all,

I have created a rqt plugin in python. When I run the application rqt and then I invoke the launch file within my plugin.py and then I tick the static map option in Rviz, I get the following error:

[ WARN] [1394792185.671328003]: Failed to create full-size map texture, likely because your graphics card does not support textures of size > 2048.  Downsampling to [2048 x 2048]...
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'Ogre::RenderingAPIException'
  what():  OGRE EXCEPTION(3:RenderingAPIException): Zero sized texture surface on texture MapTexture0Downsampled face 0 mipmap 0. Probably, the GL driver refused to create the texture. in GLTexture::_createSurfaceList at /build/buildd/ogre-1.7.4/RenderSystems/GL/src/OgreGLTexture.cpp (line 406)
Aborted (core dumped)

But the funny thing is that, if I run Rviz separately from the plugin with the command rosrun rviz rviz and then I run map server command and then I tick the static map in Rviz. I have no error and the map is uploaded into Rviz.

To be sincere I have no clue what is triggering this error.

I will appreciate any help.

The code is just down here

Can you show your code in plugin.py?

The code is just up here, the funny thing is that it was working well.

Souns like the launchfile you're launching is publishing a huge map. You can do "rostopic echo /map --noarr" and watch the output when you run your plugin to see the exact size.

Well, I get this map size width: 1984 height: 1984 Then I get another error: terminate called after throwing an instance of 'Ogre::InternalErrorException' what(): OGRE EXCEPTION(7:InternalErrorException): Cannot create GL vertex buffer in GLHardwareVertexBuffer::GLHardwareVertexBuffer at /build/buildd/ogre-1.7.4/RenderSystems/GL/src/OgreGLHardwareVertexBuffer.cpp (line 46)

The funny thing is that it works quite well when I launch the application in a launch file outside the rqt plugin GUI. I have installed rosserial following this site, http://wiki.ros.org/rosserial_arduino/Tutorials/Arduino%20IDE%20Setup maybe that installation somehow screw up my rqt plugin
