I got following error messages. What's the problem? I compiled the code on Ubuntu 12.04 and just run it.

Why aren't you using the pre-packaged version of gazebo?

I'm just trying to understand the inside code.

Hi Jeongseok, can you confirm tht this was due to lack of direct rendering as indicated by glxinfo?
