startup rqt not working

asked 2016-11-22 14:02:11 -0500

I'm trying to run rqt_gui on startup so I added it to my startup applications list.

I tried both 'rqt' and 'rosrun rqt_gui rqt_gui' as the command but neither work. Even if roscore isn't running using the command 'rqt' brings up an empty window, so I am confused at what the issue could be.

Does your startup command include sourcing the appropriate setup.bash? Without a configured environment, it will probably not work. See the many questions about starting ROS binaries using (desktop) shortcuts for how to set this up.
