I followed this Youtube-tutorial, but I end up not being able to execute any movements, planning works fine so far. These are the errors I get when my Robot is launched in Rviz.

Planning scene monitors started.
libpng warning: iCCP: known incorrect sRGB profile

and furthermore:

When I use rostopic list in a seperate shell when launching the above file, I can see the arm_controller, but once everything settled launching the above file, the arm_controller is no more shown on rostopic list and several other topics are then displayed.

Now this is the error I eventually get when trying to execute a planned path:

[ERROR] [1553338700.303182035]: Unable to identify any set of controllers that can actuate the specified joints: [ elbow_joint shoulder_lift_joint shoulder_pan_joint wrist_1_joint wrist_2_joint wrist_3_joint ]

I have checked several files like Appreciate your help! Thanks!

Can you provide details about the complete simulation environment? are you trying to send the trajectory generated by moveit to any simulator?? Because if you want to visualize the trajectory in RVIZ then fake trajectory execution takes place which is governed by fake_controllers (You can find them in your moveit_config package)

Waiting for arm_controller/follow_joint_trajectory to come up

This would seem to indicate that either you have no drivers running for your robot, they are not correctly configured or MoveIt isn't correctly configured to use them.

You'll have to provide a little more detail on what exactly you are running. Showing launch files would be easiest. Also include a screenshot of rqt_graph and the output of rostopic list in both cases (so when the action server still seems to be there and once not any longer).

Okay I finally figured it out, apparently many things have to be right. I noticed when I ran my gazebo Simulator an issue I previously addressed appeared again. So I had to apply the fix from this one in the shell where I would launch rviz. It was crucial that the gazebo simulator was running too, to eventually work.

I have been receiving similar errors, @Joel13934 can you please elaborate on what "many things have to be right"? I have checked your previous question but that is unfortunately no help.

@gvdhoorn if you wouldn't mind...I have started a new question along these lines including my launch files, my rostopic list results, and my rqt_graph results...352048 your assistance is so appreciated, I am so close to getting this thing moving!
