I am trying to run a laser scan with out odometer. Here is the copy of my launch file:

may be problem with laser topic name or clock option in rosbag play

The problem is that there's nothing in my rosbag after recording my laser scan. I can view the real time actual scan with rviz.

With rosbag record -a, I get:[ WARN] [1418565044.601012694]: /use_sim_time set to true and no clock published. Still waiting for valid time...

do rosparam set use_sim_time true before starting record.

I did get a map made, and could play it back. I set rosparam set use_sim_time false. I don't know if my robot can use it, though.
