Can I install/start rviz, when I only have installed ROS base (Ubunto 10.04, electric)?

You should install the ROS visualization stack if you want to use RVIZ:

sudo apt-get install ros-electric-visualization

You could basically also checkout RVIZ source and manually install all dependencies but i think you really should NOT do this...

This problem might be caused by Ogre or OpenGL. You can check:

for Troubleshooting (especially section 3.4 might be of interest for you).

Thank you!

I install this stack, but when I like to start rviz with "rosrun rviz rviz" I get following information:

INFO [1334752437.645123296]: rviz revision number 1.6.7 INFO [1334752437.645302342]: ogre_tools revision number 1.6.2 INFO [1334752437.645396558]: compiled against OGRE version 1.7.3 (Cthugha) INFO [1334752437.714417048]: Loading general config from [/home/janina/.rviz/config] INFO [1334752437.714674451]: Loading display config from [/home/janina/.rviz/display_config] INFO [1334752437.757203727]: RTT Preferred Mode is PBuffer. INFO [1334752437.953380257]: Texture for pass 0: creating with size 1 x 1 Segmentation fault

Why do not start rviz?
