Hi All,

I followed this tutorial ""

When I am trying any camera related world file,

> gazebo --verbose  /opt/ros/crystal/share/gazebo_plugins/worlds/

it throws error as

 [Err] [Plugin.hh:180] Failed to load plugin cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory. is present in the /opt/ros/crystal/lib. I am trying it on Ubuntu 18.04 crystal.

Thanks in advance.

I solved this by following below steps:- Created new workspace and copied only gazebo_plugin project in that. Locate

$ locate

Copy it manually to the install locatio

Thanks -- this fixed it for me, too. But why is this failing in the first place? I'm still stumped.

I faced the same issue on ROS Dashing today. A less intrusive way to solve it is to source the gazebo setup file before running gazebo:

. /usr/share/gazebo-9/ && gazebo --verbose  /opt/ros/dashing/share/gazebo_plugins/worlds/
