I have Unbunt 16.04 and ROS kinetic.

In the terminal, running the command gazebo opens Gazebo7

when I try to roslaunch myfile.launch ( which works perfectly in another device), I got error that:

/opt/ros/kinetic/lib/gazebo_ros/gzserver: 31: .: Can't open /usr/local/share/gazebo//
/opt/ros/kinetic/lib/gazebo_ros/gzclient: 31: .: Can't open /usr/local/share/gazebo//
[gazebo-5] process has died [pid 4542, exit code 2, cmd /opt/ros/kinetic/lib/gazebo_ros/gzserver -e ode worlds/ __name:=gazebo __log:=/home/evadro/.ros/log/d1002e94-94a8-11eb-8f41-b25c5df1f650/gazebo-5.log].

log file: /home/evadro/.ros/log/d1002e94-94a8-11eb-8f41-b25c5df1f650/gazebo_gui-6*.log

Actually, there is no gazebo directory inside /usr/local/share/

Rviz loads, but Gazebo does not load !

How can I fix this issue?

Thank you. The answer suggests editing setup_path variable in /gazebo_ros/gzserver and /gazebo_ros/gzclient

However, both files are read only.

I'm not sure if it is a good practice to edit read only files, but you can do so using the following command sudo gedit /gazebo_ros/gzserver and the same for the other file
