I have installed ROS electric (Ubuntu 10.04).

I get this error message when I like to start rviz with rosrun rviz rviz:

INFO [1347807197.728174501]: rviz revision number 1.6.7

**Segmentation fault**

I tried export OGRE_RTT_MODE=Copy (also PBuffer, or FBO), but it does not work.

Does anybody know an other solution for this problem?

Thanks for help!

I'm also using electric and have this issue. However, depending on the exact Segfault message, it appears that it is fixed in fuerte and probably will not be fixed in electric.

I suggest you take a look here, sections 3 and 4 :

And, regards to specific errors... BadDrawable error :

Mesa bug : See near bottom that shows "rosrun rviz rviz -sync"

Well i do not know what is causing this problem but i can give you some hints which i us if rviz fails.

  1. If rviz was once working and is not any longer then something is wrong with the config file within your home folder. Delete the config file in /home/USERNAME/.rviz will help.

  2. IF rviz fails after software updated, then it can be that the graphi card driver needs to be reinstalled once more

Hope this helps
