My system specs:

  • Ubuntu 14.04 64bit
  • ROS Indigo (debians)
  • Processor: Intel® Xeon(R) CPU E5-2670 v2 @ 2.50GHz × 17
  • Graphics: Quadro K2000/PCIe/SSE2
  • RVIZ 1.11.4
  • OpenGL version string: 2.1.2 NVIDIA 346.35

I have all the latest updates. I have also tried to install a number of libs related to pixmap, though I am not very familiar with this entity.

When I open RVIZ I get the following errors:

[ INFO] [1426213335.703080768]: rviz version 1.11.4
[ INFO] [1426213335.703153822]: compiled against OGRE version 1.8.1 (Byatis)
[ INFO] [1426213336.610654838]: Stereo is NOT SUPPORTED

[ERROR] [1426213337.321457448]: Could not load pixmap '/opt/ros/indigo/share/rviz/icons/rotate.svg'
[ERROR] [1426213337.321522121]: Could not load pixmap 'package://rviz/icons/rotate.svg' -- using default cursor instead.
[ERROR] [1426213337.352575651]: Could not load pixmap '/opt/ros/indigo/share/rviz/icons/rotate_cam.svg'
[ERROR] [1426213337.352619651]: Could not load pixmap 'package://rviz/icons/rotate_cam.svg' -- using default cursor instead.
...

And so on, for all the other icons.

This is causing me real difficulty when I want to select point clouds through Publish Selected Points. Since the cursor does not show up, only a golden rectange, which would be at the bottom of the cursor, one has to guess where the cursor would be. It's hard to select individual points.

I have not seen any specific answers to the pixmap situation. Could it be an OGRE thing?

I have another computer that says:

>>$ rosrun rviz rviz 
Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "pk-gtk-module"
[ INFO] [1426213583.121701537]: rviz version 1.10.18

[ INFO] [1426213584.715970376]: OpenGl version: 3 (GLSL 1.3).

While the Indigo computer says:

>>$ rosrun rviz rviz
[ INFO] [1426213335.703080768]: rviz version 1.11.4
[ INFO] [1426213335.703153822]: compiled against OGRE version 1.8.1 (Byatis)

This part of the question is updated based on responses: - This is my versions of qt:

ii  ros-indigo-qt-build                                   0.2.7-1trusty-20141229-2207-+0000                      amd64        Currently just maintains a cmake api for simplifying the building of qt apps within the ros framework.
ii  ros-indigo-qt-create                                  0.2.7-1trusty-20141229-2109-+0000                      amd64        Provides templates and scripts for creating qt-ros packages (similar to roscreate-pkg).
ii  ros-indigo-qt-dotgraph                                0.2.26-0trusty-20141230-0049-+0000                     amd64        qt_dotgraph provides helpers to work with dot graphs.

I installed from debians. Yes, I meant Ubuntu, sorry. All the icons that can't be loaded are there.

Do you have icons at /opt/ros/indigo/share/rviz/icons?


I installed from debians. Yes, I meant Ubuntu, sorry. All the icons that can't be loaded are there.

Edit: Ok, can you update your question with the output of ls -al /usr/lib/qt/plugins/imageformats/? Also, version of qt installed?


Edit2: The pkgs you listed are rqt pkgs, not the plain Qt pkgs. How did you install Qt itself? Normal debians, or from source? Easiest is probably dpkg -l | grep libqt. Is libqt4-svg in that list (dpkg -l | grep libqt4-svg)?

The only folder that I have is: /usr/lib/qt4/plugins but no imageformats folder.

My bad: for 64 bit systems it should be: ls -al /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt4/plugins/imageformats/.
