  • Ubuntu 16.04
  • Ros Kinetic
  • xacro 1.11.3

I am trying to simulate Baxter on Gazebo, I used the following instructions for the installation:
baxter simulation

But after typing the command:

roslaunch baxter_gazebo baxter_world.launch

it gives me this error:

Invalid <param> tag: Cannot load command parameter [robot_description]: command [/opt/ros/kinetic/lib/xacro/xacro -i /home/baxter3/catkin_ws/src/baxter_common/baxter_description/urdf/baxter.urdf.xacro gazebo:=true left_electric_gripper:=true right_electric_gripper:=true] returned with code [2].

Param xml is <param command="$(find xacro)/xacro -i $(find baxter_description)/urdf/baxter.urdf.xacro gazebo:=true left_electric_gripper:=$(arg left_electric_gripper) right_electric_gripper:=$(arg right_electric_gripper)" if="$(arg load_robot_description)" name="robot_description"/> The traceback for the exception was written to the log file

I tried to solve this problem with :

but anything can't solve my problem.

Check whether your xml file is well formed or not.

These error are most probable in this case.

Verify your xml files via xml validators online. I have solved my problem through that only.
