Hi all,

We're following to learn how to import a robot into a visualizer. We're running Ubuntu 16.04 with Kinetic and trying to use the default demo robot (Dave T. Colman's PR2 robot from ).

We seem to have everything installed properly, but when we get to "Step 3: Interact with the PR2" we don't get any of the interactive markers like we're supposed to. We're in Interact mode but it seems to only behave in camera mode. Any ideas?

There is a small chance this is caused by the merge of ros-visualization/rviz#1176. ros-visualization/rviz#1179 is a follow-up with some discussion.

I had similar problem (interactive markers not available) with moveit tutorial on Melodic. I fixed problem with another robot moveit package created by myself following The panda robot moveit package came with tutorial doesn't work for me.
