Hi!

I just finished installing ros full desktop package and gazebo but when I run gazebo in terminal it simply doesn't launch. I'm going crazy since I can't find anyone else with this problem. I'm running it on a desktop with dedicated graphics. Does anyone have an idea of how to solve the problem?

Thanks!

EDIT: I'm using jade and gazebo5, btw

EDIT2: When I run gazebo --verbose it gives me:

EDIT3: I noticed I have several gazebos in /usr/share folder. Gazebo3 and Gazebo5.4 and when I run this command:

export GAZEBO_RESOURCE_PATH=/usr/share/gazebo-5.0:/usr/share/gazebo_models:${GAZEBO_RESOURCE_PATH}

I am able to run gazebo but I have to do it every single time I open the terminal. Is there any way to make it permanent?

To make that permanent you could add it to the bottom of your .bashrc file in your home folder (gedit ~/.bashrc). Everything in that file is ran when you open a new terminal.
