I tried Gazebo 9 and 10 on Ubuntu 18.04 MATE and it quits in a few seconds without showing Gazebo GUI. I'm running it on 32-bit Intel CPU with 950 Graphics chipset (pretty old). Here is what I see in the terminal:

paul@paul-tc4400:~$ gazebo --verbose

I would appreciate any ideas how to fix or diagnose this issue.

System requirements

Gazebo is currently best used on Ubuntu, a flavor of Linux. You will need a computer that has:

A dedicated GPU,

Nvidia cards tend to work well in Ubuntu

A CPU that is at least an Intel I5, or equivalent,

At least 500MB of free disk space,

Ubuntu Trusty or later installed.

You have an incompatible CPU with Gazebo's requirements.

  • $\begingroup$ CPU is compatible, it seems that nvidia GPU is required. $\endgroup$ – Paul Jurczak Oct 13 '19 at 12:35
