MoveIt blacks RViz screen out

Hi,

I have a problem using MoveIt:

I have a .urdf file I can display in RViz without any problems. I then wanted to use MoveIt and get a black screen in 90% of all cases. It loads the robot in (I can chose the joints, etc) but it only shows me a black screen, not even the grid. When I go into my launch/move_group.launch file and comment out the move_group note

     <node name="move_group" launch-prefix="$(arg launch_prefix)" pkg="moveit_ros_move_group" type="move_group" respawn="false" output="screen" args="$(arg command_args)">
...
...
...
</node>

it works perfectly fine for me. If I use the commented code and turn on the debugger, it throws me the following error:

    Starting program: /opt/ros/groovy/lib/moveit_ros_move_group/move_group --debug __name:=move_group __log:=/home/ajm/.ros/log/b889376e-09b1-11e3-8f77-c417fe8535ce/move_group-4.log

process[rviz_ajm_Latitude_E6500_24301_566916859287898865-5]: started with pid [24365]

I was already tried the following: - disable/enable MoveIt in RViz - try different ogre-rtt settings - reinstall MoveIt (normal and developer version)

Any input is well appreciated. I also welcome more information regarding tcsetpgrp.

Thanks!

This can be for the graphics card. I changed my computer and resolved the problem. Here, had the same problem.

This is more likely the correct answer. I dont think it has anything to do with RAM. Once the correct driver is used, there should be no issue. Else there is be cases in which rviz is also blacked out

Hi,

So I had a similar problem of RViz having a black screen while running it with MoveIt on VMware Player and I fixed it by allocating more RAM to the virtual machine. Not sure if this will fix your problem or not (or if it's been fixed by now, which I do hope it has being almost a year later) but possibly for anyone who googled this problem and is looking for an answer I hope this helps.

Hi,

thanks for answering.

What worked for me is first launching rviz and then launching moveit_ros_move_group. Def not the nicest solution, but it worked well and was easy to implement.

However, thank you very much for the graphic card tip, I will try it out as it would be the nicer solution
