I am running ROS Hydro on Ubuntu 13.04, with kernel 3.8.0-35-generic. My graphics card info: ATI Seymour [Radeon HD 6400M/7400M Series], and I am using the Radeon driver.

I get an error while trying to run the following command from the turtlebot_simulator tutorial:

roslaunch turtlebot_gazebo turtlebot_playground.launch

(I get a similar error while trying to run "roslaunch turtlebot_gazebo turtlebot_empty_world.launch" also)

This is what I get in the terminal window:

process[cmd_vel_mux-6]: started with pid [13821] process[bumper2pointcloud-7]: started with pid [13840] Msg Waiting for master.process[robot_state_publisher-8]: started with pid [13859] Msg Waiting for master Msg Connected to gazebo master @ http:// Msg Publicized address: process[laserscan_nodelet_manager-9]: started with pid [13920] process[depthimage_to_laserscan-10]: started with pid [13926] Floating point exception (core dumped)

Resolved the problem. The issue was with the graphics driver. Installing proprietary ATI drivers resolved it.

Could you check this page ( )? Probably this answer solves your problem. Because Error message says Failed to connect to master in 30 seconds. Your problem has a relationship with gzclient and gzserver. I think so.
