i end up in an error:

  what():  failed to initialized rcl init options: failed to load shared library of rmw implementation. Exception: Cannot load library: /opt/ros/crystal/lib/ undefined symbol: _ZTVN8eprosima8fastrtps27DataRepresentationQosPolicyE, at /tmp/binarydeb/ros-crystal-rmw-implementation-0.6.1/src/functions.cpp:136, at /tmp/binarydeb/ros-crystal-rcl-0.6.5/src/rcl/init_options.c:55

I had the same problem but on Windows after installing Ros2 from binaries. Building ROS2 from source solved the problem for me.

Other solution I saw was to install OpenSplice and set the rmw implemenation to that.\
