I loaded a map in rviz using the map_server. I made the pgm file of map using p3at robot in Gazebo. The map is loaded but showing error:

The error is : Fixed frame [map] does not exist.

I am not able to spawn the robot in rviz again.

You can explore the problem by setting up one or more static tf as in , to fulfil the map->base_link tf relationship described by mig , above.

You don't have a localization as e.g. amcl running. Thus, the transformation map->base_link (or whatever you have for your robots link) does not exist.

amcl is running but timeout is occurring at obtaining the transformation map->base_link !

the above answer is all you'll get without providing more information.

We need the launch files, configurations, the output of rosrun tf view_frames. Ideally, send a link to GitHub where you have your files...
