I am testing the mit-kinect hand interaction demo. I managed to get the demo running and displayed hands on rviz. However, the "skeletonmap" could not be displayed due to:

Plugin from package [mapping_rviz_plugin] not loaded for display class [mapping_rviz_plugin::PolygonalMapDisplay]

I tried "rosmake mapping_rviz_plugin" and the problem remains. Tried re-"rosmake rviz", tried start system, the problem persists - the PolygonalMap3 is in red with the above error message.

Hopeful for some help here. I am on ros-electric and Ubuntu 11.10 x64.


I am still struggling with this problem. Any help?

I do not know why I am not able to edit my question, neither am I able to comment on your answers. This happens after sign in. Anyway, I use this space to respond to answers.

@abrsefid. Thanks, did that many times without error, however the plugin still doesn't load in rviz.

@egiljones. Did that as well, arm-navigation stack is there, mapping_rviz_plugin is there (rosmaked), rviz is there (did rosmake as well), however the plugin just doesn't load in rviz.

Any more help please?

I asked a question about the definition of PolygonalMap in Electric a while back. Perhaps this is why it won't work. Just FYI, mit-ros-pkg page only lists cturtle and diamondback as supported versions.

The mapping_rviz_plugin package is in the arm_navigation stack - did you try to 'sudo apt-get install ros-electric-arm-navigation'?
