I am new to rtabmap_ros. I have installed rtabmap_ros for indigo & was following steps mentioned in

to run the demo_mapping.bag file. The problem is rtabmap_ros will open but nothing is getting displayed.

Can anyone help me out to solve this.

Cannot reproduce the problem (Indigo binaries, version 0.11.8):

$ roslaunch rtabmap_ros demo_robot_mapping.launch
$ rosbag play --clock demo_mapping.bag

If you launch with RVIZ, do you see something?

$ roslaunch rtabmap_ros demo_robot_mapping.launch rviz:=true rtabmapviz:=false

Even when I run roslaunch rtabmap_ros demo_robot_mapping.launch rviz:=true rtabmapviz:=false, I wont get any display

Can you copy/paste the terminal output in your question?
