Gazebo doesn't give the option for saving a world

asked 2016-02-17 09:05:02 -0500

Hello, ROS Community!

I use Jade distribution, Gazebo 5.1.0 version, Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS

When I add some objects Insert tab of Gazebo and try to save the world after, I cant do it. The empty window Save World popped up without any options.

Yesterday, I was struggling with this problem too. When I was stopping gazebo process by terminal or GUI, the world objects were deleted too. It means gazebo was launched (rosrun gazebo_ros gazebo) with empty scene every times.

I decided to update packages by sudo apt-get update command, because I suggested the bug can belong to ubuntu. So, I updated them successfully.

Today, I get the empty Save World window again, but objects are saved even when I stop gazebo process with this notification:

albina@alb91:~/catkin_ws/src$ rosrun gazebo_ros gazebo
/opt/ros/jade/lib/gazebo_ros/gazebo: 30: kill: invalid signal number or name: SIGINT

I had some problems with gazebo 5 gui when I was trying to import some images for the building editor. So I moved to gazebo6.

Maybe you can write a launch file to include models and world. You can put model in accurate position by writing it. An example. It is not complicated to do that.
