Hello, I'm using Hydro, Ubuntu 12.04 and I installed Moveit from the source. When I try to load my .urdf with the setup_assistant, moveit prints that:

    [ INFO] [1411283688.252217911]: Loaded motoman_mh5 robot model.

In other computer with the same system, it works. So I assume that the .urdf is ok.


Running it with GDB, that is what I get:

It seems that I had a problem with my graphic drivers.

  1. I tried "glxinfo | grep OpenGL" and the result was "Error: couldn't find RGB GLX visual or fbconfig"
  2. I googled it, and I found this: ""
  3. Finally, I could run "glxinfo | grep OpenGL", and I could load the .urdf in moveit_setup_assistant.

I could run the "demo.launch" when I finished the tutorial(I never before could do this), too.

Thank you anyway, gvdhoom.

Try to run the moveit_setup_assistant binary in gdb. See the How to Roslaunch Nodes in Valgrind or GDB tutorial for info on how to do that. Then do a backtrace after it's crashed.


In other computer with the same system, it works. So I assume that the .urdf is ok.

Is that 'other system' running its own binaries, or are they copies of the from-source compilations on your machine with issues?

And: does it crash with other urdfs?

Yes, in other system with its own binaries. But the same urdf. I tried with other urdf, but the result is the same
