Hello guys, I'm novice in ROS. I'm trying a new laser scanner for generating a map, I receive the points of the laser scanner but hector_mapping not generate the map, I don't know why... P.S. I'm running Ubuntu 17.10 on Virtualbox, ROS melodic.

Unfortunately I can't post a screenshot.

my code on shell:

roslaunch xxxxxxxx_lidar ls.launch scan_mode:=104

file ls.launch

<?xml version="1.0"?>

  <!-- .launch XML config files for xxxxxxxx_lidar -->

  <param name="pub_map_odom_transform" value="true"/>

First off, it makes this alot more challenging for volunteers to try to help you if your obscure your setup with xxxxxxx as the unit name.

Secondly, I'd ensure you have things coming through the topic SLAM expects the scan through and there is a TF tree. Any errors from Hector?
