I am new to ROS so there is probably a simple explanation for what I am doing wrong, but I have been having problems getting Gazebo to work with ROS, as described in the ROS simulator_gazebo tutorial. I have insufficient karma to post a direct link, unfortunately.

when I try to follow the steps there, I get errors The gazebo wiki install guide mentions that there is a problem with the ROS Gazebo tutorial, and when I followed the install instructions for gazebo on that site, I have been able to get gazebo to run as a stand alone system successfully.

However I need to run it with ROS - I assume the only way to do this is using roslaunch

Is there a simple fix to make the ROS tutorial work, or is there a workaround to make the standalone gazebo work with ROS?

I am using ROS Groovy, on Ubuntu 12.04 i386

Unfortunately I have insufficient karma to attach a log file, so I have to post it in here.

The resulting logfile contains the following errors:

Please make sure that standalone Gazebo is not running by executing ps ax | grep [g]z. If there is no gzserver and gzclient you are fine. Then try again to launch it from simulator_gazebo with roslaunch gazebo_worlds empty_world.launch and update the question with new result.
