Hi everyone,

My question is very simple: What I'm doing wrong????

I did a easy subscriptor:

#include "ros/ros.h"
#include "gazebo_msgs/ModelState.h"

void chatterCallback(const gazebo_msgs::ModelState::ConstPtr& msg)
    int i = 0;

    ROS_INFO("I heard: %d", i);

int main(int argc, char **argv)
  ros::init(argc, argv, "listener");

  ros::NodeHandle n;

  ros::Subscriber sub = n.subscribe("gazebo/model_states",1000, chatterCallback);
    ROS_INFO("IN ");
    ROS_INFO("OUT ");


  return 0;

And the resoult is:


[ INFO] [1352123368.021140417]: IN 
[ INFO] [1352123369.264976085, 18.667000000]: OUT 
(.. nothing ..)

While I do: (I obtain a lot of topic)

rostopic echo /gazebo/model_states

You are using the wrong message type when subscribing. The type is ModelStates, not ModelState. Change your include line and the signature of the function chatterCallback and it should work.
