I am trying to follow along this tutorial here: http://gazebosim.org/tutorials/?tut=r... Everythings works kinda great so far, however when I try to open RRBot in RViz I do not see the robot (although the joints exist and I can rotate it). You can find an image attached.

I am using Ros lunar on Ubuntu 17.04 (Zesty Zapus) with RViz 1.12.13

How to troubleshoot this problem?

Maybe you have to add the model to the ~/.gazebo/models folder.

Or include the /path/of/parent/folder/of/your/model on the GAZEBO_MODEL_PATH environment variable on the same terminal where RViz is launched.

This could be caused by locale settings. See ros-visualization/rviz#1151.
