John, or anyone else:

It looks like the source to build libgazebo_ros_time.so has been removed from gazebo_plugins?

The page for the package http://ros.org/wiki/gazebo_plugins still mentions the GazeboRosTime plugin.

So, has this plugin been removed due to changes in Gazebo?

Thanks, David.

More info:

I'm trying to launch the Meka A2 Virtual Robot, as per this page: http://mekabot.com/wiki/doku.php?id=user_guides:software:ros_tutorials

While Gazebo is trying to launch, I get an error: Error [Plugin.hh:100] Failed to load plugin libgazebo_ros_time.so: libgazebo_ros_time.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Searching Google reveals 2 threads suggesting that the gazebo_plugins package did not compile correctly.

I double-checked that it did compile correctly, then I checked the SVN for gazebo_plugins and noticed that the file libgazebo_ros_time.cpp is missing.

I decided to check when the file was removed from the SVN...

Current revision is 39596

In a new directory: % svn co https://code.ros.org/svn/ros-pkg/stacks/simulator_gazebo/trunk/gazebo_plugins@38276

revision 38276 20 Oct 2011 by hsu was the last revision I could find the source for the time plugin.

You can use the tutorial in http://mekabot.com/wiki/doku.php?id=user_guides:software:ros_tutorials, which works with Fuerte.

Hi @dbworth! Were you able to find a solution to this problem? I am facing the same, i.e. Error [Plugin.hh:100] Failed to load plugin libgazebo_ros_time.so: libgazebo_ros_time.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Any ideas how to get it working?
