Hi All,

When I open rviz by using:

rosrun rviz rviz

The global status is warn and show that:

No tf data. Actual error: Fixed Frame [map] doesn not exist.

When I check the error by using roswtf, it gives me:

Found 1 warning(s). Warnings are things that may be just fine, but are sometimes at fault

WARNING The following node subscriptions are unconnected: * /rviz_1396847525971343571: * /tf_static * /tf

Anyone can help me to solve this problem?

@Sendoh: I' sorry, I don't understand you well. Did you execute following command?

rosrun rviz rviz

That's it. As you don't call a map and robot_description in this case, I think that the error message [No tf data. Actual error] is a normal result. If not so, I hope you explain us more detail.

Hi @Ken_in_JAPAN, thanks for your reply. I am trying to implement rviz tutorial: When I open up rviz and run rosrun using_markers basic_shapes I didn't see any marker or shape in the rviz. So I try to figure out which problem I have made. More details please follow this link:

If anybody else has this problem, the solution is to simply launch the bot then you get "Global Status: Ok"

"launch the bot" What do you mean?
