I am trying to load the demo_3d.rviz Rviz configuration that comes in the configuration files of cartographer_ros when installing Ros2 Foxy.

However I get a windows with the following information:

The class required for this view controller, 'rviz/ TopDownOrtho', could not be loaded. Error:

According to the loaded plugin descriptions the class rviz/Top DownOrtho with base class type rviz_common::ViewController does not exist. Declared types are rviz_default_plugins/FPS rviz_default_plugins/Orbit rviz_default_plugins/Third PersonFollower rviz_default_plugins/TopDownOrtho rviz_default_plugins/XYOrbit

I get more traces in the cmd, but I don't know how to solve this...

Did you change something yourself? I tried checking the file you mentioned and it seems to use ThirdPersonFollower and not TopDownOrtho.

Can you launch RViz by simply running rviz2 in the terminal?

Yes! I can! And I didn't change anything...
