Hi everyone,

I have Ubuntu 14.04 and ROS Indigo (binary install).

I recently ran into a strange problem upon launching my MoveIt demo.launch file.

Here is the error message :

Got bus address:  "unix:abstract=/tmp/dbus-cQ74GDOPtt,guid=b4d59d77903e1ddcbea2229d584004da" 
Connected to accessibility bus at:  "unix:abstract=/tmp/dbus-cQ74GDOPtt,guid=b4d59d77903e1ddcbea2229d584004da"
Registered DEC:  true 
[rviz-4] process has died [pid 28494, exit code -11, cmd /opt/ros/indigo/lib/rviz/rviz -d /home/doshi/pr2_ws/src/trial/config/default.rviz __name:=rviz __log:=/home/doshi/.ros/log/b8008efe-b7dd-11e6-9afc-c1578ce90678/rviz-4.log].
log file: /home/doshi/.ros/log/b8008efe-b7dd-11e6-9afc-c1578ce90678/rviz-4*.log

I tried reinstalling Rviz (worked in this situation) but it didn't work for me.

sometimes it works even after showing this message but most of the timesRviz fails to start.

What could be the issue?

Can you launch rviz by itself? roscore and in another shell rosrun rviz rviz.

If so, then it's likely a plugin that is causing the crash. Without a backtrace from gdb, I cannot tell you what exactly the issue is.

You may need to update the move it packages, not only rviz as your linked answer tells you to do. You can upgrade everything on your computer at once with sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade.

Sorry for the delay. I am able to run RViz with roscore. I upgraded with the commands you mentioned but that didn't work. I am guessing there are some problems with my graphics drivers ( but I am not able to find any info about that.
