Hello, I am new to ROS and just I have just managed to install and run the robotino-ros-pkg in my ubuntu VM. I am working on multiple robotinos and I needed to create a static map for them to run in. I was following the gmapping tutorial and I was able to launch all the nodes, and also open rviz successfully. But before launching rviz I get the following of errors in the gmapping launch terminal

libGL error: pci id for fd 24: 80ee:beef, driver (null)

OpenGL Warning: Failed to connect to host. Make sure 3D acceleration is enabled for this VM.

libGL error: core dri or dri2 extension not found

libGL error: failed to load driver: vboxvideo

Inspite of these errors rviz opens up but I am not able to move the robotino around with the keyboard as suggested in the tutorial.

The RobotModel section in the Displays Menu has error status but I do not have enough points to make an upload, but all the subsections inside RobotModel are marked in red and the following message is displayed alongside

anglebracketusb_link No transform from [anglebracketusb_link] to [map]

base_link No transform from [base_link] to [map]

and so on for command_bridge_link, kinect_link etc.

I need to create a static map with static obstacles and targets to create a co-ordination mechanism between the two robotinos, any kind of guidance is appreciated.Thanks in advance.

Fixed after Ubuntu upgrade. All the errors disappeared. Robotino movement only possible when the terminal running teleop node launch is on top

Hello Karthik, I am also using Robotino robot. Would you mind getting in touch so it will be easy to learn?
