Hi Everyone,

I want to launch a gazebo (11) world and model in ROS Noetic. This also contains differential drive controller defined as follows:

   <plugin name="differential_drive_controller" filename="">
     <robotNamespace />

But when launched, I am getting not found error. If I use (as this binary is present at the GAZEBO_PLUGIN_PATH) , I get following error

[Err] [] DiffDrive plugin missing <left_joint> element
[Err] [] DiffDrive plugin missing <right_joint> element

I tried to follow the steps mentioned here. Is there any update with respect to how the default plugins work in Gazebo 11? Because it is working in Gazebo 9 and melodic.

Thanks and regards, Shreyas
