I am trying to use the Gazebo static map plugin following the tutorial at However, when I launch Gazebo, with the command gazebo --verbose, the world appears white, and an error shows in the console.

[Err] [Plugin.hh:180] Failed to load plugin cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I've looked throughout my computer, but I can't find this file, and as far as I can tell, it should come with Gazebo. What do I need to do to fix this?

This is on ROS Melodic on Ubuntu 18.04.

For now this looks like a Gazebo-only problem. I'd recommend posting this over at, as there will be more experienced users there.

If you do post there, please post a link here in a comment so we can keep things connected.

For anyone that ends up here, it turns out the plugin is for Gazebo 10, not 9.
