I am running ros hydro and rqt is launch via a launch file. Roscore is running, as well as gazebo. I can start rviz via rosrun rviz rviz and it works fine....but not by way of rqt.

 <node name="rqt_gui" pkg="rqt_gui" type="rqt_gui"/>

After a recent upgrade rqt could no longer open rviz. The error is below. Also related to to the upgrade an number of bashsr file paths are not working

bash: /share/rosbash/rosbash: No such file or directory
ROS_ROOT=/share/ros: No such file or directory

I fixed these in the base file but I still get the error below from rqt.

PluginManager._load_plugin() could not load plugin "rqt_rviz/RViz": RosPluginlibPluginProvider.load() could not load plugin "rqt_rviz/RViz"

What ROS distro are you running on? With what command do you run rqt_rviz?

Besides those general clarifications, this looks similar to this thread. And on ROS Groovy, I can replicate very similar issue with roscore not running.
