Hello I am new to ROS and trying to get the Kinova jaco arm working in Gazebo to test gripping algorithms, the launch files included with the code obtained from do not launch gazebo so I am assuming they are all for the real robot. I compiled the code with catkin_make then tried loading an empty world in Gazebo and spawning the arm in like so:

rosrun gazebo_ros spawn_model -file src/jaco-ros/jaco_model/urdf/jaco_arm.xacro -model jaco_common -urdf

but it says Service call failed: service [/gazebo/spawn_urdf_model] responded with an error:
(And it is blank after the error: part)

Is it possible to load this into gazebo? If so please tell me how thank you

(If not, feel free to suggest any other hand models with >4 DOF that work in Gazebo & Jade!)
