I want to use 'rqt_rviz' rqt plugin in ROS2


The source code is ROS1 code, so I tried to change it to ROS2 code.

The modified code build was successful and appeared on the plug-in list in rqt.

When I clicked rqt_rviz, the following message is output and rqt is terminated.

I'd like to ask you guys for advice.

  • $\begingroup$ This looks more like a libGL error than something strictly concerned with Rviz. Maybe you can look for which particular line causes this failed to create drawable error, this can lead to better diagnosis. Also, I'd be happy to learn when you have succeeded in porting rqt_rviz. :) $\endgroup$
