Hi, I am new to ROS and trying to work with rviz. When I run rviz using following command

rosrun rviz rviz

I get following error prompt (on a window)

Config file does not exist

/home/abc/.rviz/display_config does not exist!

Can any one help me please? Thanks.

In ROS Fuerte and earlier, this message is normal to come up the first time you launch RViz.

After RViz has come up, select File / Save Config and it should disappear next time run RViz.
