ROS environment variables:



[ INFO] [1583684440.312466155]: rviz version 1.12.17
[ INFO] [1583684440.312497891]: compiled against Qt version 5.5.1
[ INFO] [1583684440.312505512]: compiled against OGRE version 1.9.0 (Ghadamon)

We build a robot and use moveit to control the robot. The planning and execute in rviz plugin motionplanning works well, but the interactive marker disappeared as shown in the first image of this page

The project packages is in github. According to the README here and the only Moveit mode, you can reproduce the problem.

I check the xacro file of model by check_urdf <(xacro --inorder ridgeback.urdf.xacro) and the output is below:

From betago_manipulation/betago_moveit_config/config/kinematics.yaml it would appear you have no kinematics solvers configured at all:


The interactive marker you are most likely referring to only work for groups which have IK solvers configured.
