I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS a completely fresh install in a VirtualBox. I installed the full package version of ROS indigo, and then started going through the tutorials. When running:

rosrun rqt_graph rqt_graph

I get:

PluginHandlerDirect._restore_settings() plugin "rqt_graph/RosGraph#0" raised an exception:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/opt/ros/indigo/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/qt_gui/", line 116, in _restore_settings

  File "/opt/ros/indigo/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/qt_dotgraph/", line 83, in getNodeItemForSubgraph
    bb = subgraph.attr['bb'].strip('"').split(',')
KeyError: 'bb'

The graph window then opens, but there are no drawings at all within. Please advise.

It's been awhile, but how did you solve the problem if you did? I just have a fresh native install like yours and the same problem.

@einrob I never solved it, I just avoid using the apps that crash.

Do other rqt tools work, e.g. rosrun rqt_bag rqt_bag?

@130s Looks like it yes.
