Got it ..Actually data directory was not downloaded i run the command [rm -r ~/.uwsim] to delete the directory .uwsim recursively and then again run rossun uwsim uwsim this message is displayed :: "The UWSim data directory (~/.uwsim/data) does not exist. We need to download ~300Mb of data and place it under ~/.uwsim/data. Note this is required to run UWSim.\nContinue (Y/n) ? " Type Y and enter. Data directory is downloaded and UWsim starts running .

Hi, the problem happens because the environment of ros is something wrong. open a terminal . '' cd ~uwsim/catkin_ws " " source isolated-install/" You can have a try. Thank you.
