Regardless of the settings I use in RVIZ for my PointCloud2, I'm only seeing gray points. It also seems as if the cloud shapes do not update as well. Screenshot as follows:

I've love to get the AxisColor option working on my Z axis, but as you can see, not even the FlatColor option is working.

I'm using Ros Melodic on Ubuntu 18.04. I used apt to install the rviz libraries:

  • ros-melodic-librviz-tutorial/bionic,now 0.10.3-0bionic.20190808.224910 amd64 [installed,automatic]
  • ros-melodic-rqt-rviz/bionic,now 0.6.0-0bionic.20190808.224756 amd64 [installed,automatic]

  • ros-melodic-rviz-visual-tools/bionic,now 3.7.0-0bionic.20190808.224259 amd64 [installed]

Any help appreciated.
