Ubuntu 16.04, ROS Kinetic

Hey, I'm trying to use moveIt with ROS Kinetic on Ubuntu 16.04. I'm just starting with MoveIt...

After configuring the robot with the moveit_setup_assistant, when I try to run the generated demo.launch I get

[ERROR] [1502554018.960375858]: Exception while loading planner 'ompl_interface/OMPLPlanner': Failed to load library /opt/ros/kinetic/lib/ Make sure that you are calling the PLUGINLIB_EXPORT_CLASS macro in the library code, and that names are consistent between this macro and your XML. Error string: Could not load library (Poco exception = cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory). 
Available plugins: ompl_interface/OMPLPlanner

And later

[ WARN] [1502554019.325665808]: MoveGroup running was unable to load ompl_interface/OMPLPlanner

I have installed moveIt, by installing the ros-kinetic-moveit package, it seems like the ros-kinetic-moveit-planners-ompl and ros-kinetic-moveit-planners are also installed.

libompl is also installed, but not version 12 as it appears to be required... when I try to install libompl12 I get an Unable to locate package error.

The rviz part seems to work, I can move the robot, etc. just the planning module is not working...

Any advices?

The correct OMPL package for the binary builds distributed in ROS kinetic is ros-kinetic-ompl which installs the missing library as /opt/ros/kinetic/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/

You probably decided to use a different one. In this case you will have to build your own MoveIt packages.

Thanks for the answer.

I've had ros-kinetic-ompl installed...

It's interesting - it didn't work at the beginning (even before I've tried to install libompl), but started now after I've purged libompl and ros-kinetic-ompl, and reinstalled ros-kinetic-moveit.

I followed @Matt_krainski 's suggestion but it did not work. However, it works after restarting the PC.
