I have a dual boot with Mac OSx 10.6.8 and Ubuntu 11.4, I am attempting to get pr2_gazebo empty_world.lanch up and running.

I am able to rosmake and run gazebo_worlds, but not the specific pr2 simulator.

Here some relevant terminal feed: There seems to be a problem with finding pr2_gazebo (as William said) Any ideas on the source of the problem (and how to fix it)?

catherine@SHERLOCK:~$ rosmake pr2_gazebo [ rosmake ] Packages requested are: ['pr2_gazebo']
[ rosmake ] Logging to directory/home/catherine/.ros/rosmake/rosmake_output-20120527-172708 [ rosmake ] Expanded args ['pr2_gazebo'] to: []
[ rosmake ] WARNING: The following args could not be parsed as stacks or packages: ['pr2_gazebo'] [ rosmake ] ERROR: No arguments could be parsed into valid package or stack names.

All input is welcome. Thank you for your time.

I fixed it. For some reason all of the stacks were not downloaded although I did the full desktop download, so I downloaded the appropriate stack. $ sudo apt-get install ros-diamondback-pr2-simulator

This looks like there is a problem finding pr2_gazebo, but that is not your largest problem.

Gazebo from diamondback is known not to work on OS X, in fact gazebo in general does not work on OS X to my knowledge. However, there is a good chance that Gazebo 1.0.x will work on OS X in the the Fuerte version of ROS, but we are still working on that.

If you want to use gazebo at this time, my advice is to use Ubuntu, either in a VM or use bootcamp to install it along side OS X.

Sorry for the problems on OS X, but I hope this helps.
