In the Using urdf with robot_state_publisher tutorial, it says:

Run rviz, choosing odom as your fixed frame. Add a Robot Model and TF.

and I got stuck there. I ran:

rosrun rviz rviz

but not sure how to do any of the other steps mentioned above. Anyone know how to make this work?

In RViz, choose "Add Display" and and add a TF and RobotModel display. Where it says "Global Options", set the fixed frame to "odom".

I updated the wiki page to make it a bit clearer.
