Hello to all

My actual gazebo-version (1.02) cant open any .urdf-file correctly. The terminal shows following:

Warning [] Gazebo SDF has no gazebo element Warning [] DEPRECATED GAZEBO MODEL FILE On July 1st, 2012, this formate will no longer by supported Convert your files using the gzsdf command line tool You have been warned!

And the urdf object is not visible. So I guessed i have to install gazebo 1.2. By using

sudo apt-get install ros-fuerte-simulator_gazebo

the terminal shows:

E: Unable to locate package ros-fuerte-simulator_gazebo

How can I solve this problem?

What OS are you on? And what are your apt sources set to?

I'm using Ubuntu 12.04. But I'm a Rookie in Linux.

My Sources are set to: sudo sh -c 'echo "deb precise main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list' like its proposed here:

That warning has been present for a while, but it is a warning not an error.

There must be some other reason why your simulation is not working.

About Gazebo 1.2:

Work [has] been done to bring us towards the more stable underlying gazebo release (1.2.x), but there's one more critical task and some more testing before switching over. @hsu

It can be installed from source, but I must highlight the strongly worded caution that "ROS Users: Never install Gazebo from here", so you probably shouldn't do so unless you really know what you're doing.

Hello viovio,

the right syntax to install gazebo is

$ sudo apt-get install ros-fuerte-simulator-gazebo (Note the - instead of the _ )

But as you I have the 1.0.2 version and many problems with it. And when running the command above, it tells that gazebo is up to date.

So I fear you can't install Gazebo 1.2 with ROS fuerte
