# husky melodic does not launch

Hello, I am a bit new to the ROS, but followed some turtlebot3 tutorials. I am using melodic, and want to use Husky robot. I installed all required packages one by one (following the errors, then I made necessary git clone & catkin_make operations; don't know any easier ways), but I still cannot make Husky work. I am following (actually cannot) the steps in that page:

http://wiki.ros.org/husky_gazebo/Tuto...

After I write $roslaunch husky_gazebo husky_empty_world.launch , that's what I get: (Errors are through the end , [ERROR] [1588197605.276042609]: Failed to build tree: child link [base_laser_mount] of joint [laser_mount_joint] not found, Error [parser_urdf.cc:3170] Unable to call parseURDF on robot model, Error [parser.cc:406] parse as old deprecated model file failed.

Then, there was no problem. By the way, instead of sourcing my workspace, I directly used command line to launch Husky, in other words, I wrote

\$ roslaunch husky_gazebo husky_empty_world.launch to the command line. I later removed my workspace, it was messed up.
