I have archlinux indigo ros. My probelm is that when I type in terminal:

$ gzclient
Segmentation fault (core dumped)


$ roslaunch turtlebot_gazebo turtlebot_world.launch

My GPU is intel HD3000 , core i5 INSPIRON N5110. I have noted that intel hd3000 works with gazebo

Thanks in advance.


It seems that Gazebo 8 is based on Qt5 instead of Qt4. The dependencies should be updated and most importantly, we need to install qwt-qt5 instead of qwt, otherwise our executable is linked to both Qt4 and Qt5 which leads to segmentation fault at start.

Here is my PKGBUILD for Gazebo:
