I have used the setup assistant of MoveIt to create the config package and it worked fine. But when I launched the demo.launch file, I got the following error :

[ WARN] [1472827541.765044325]: The root link base_link has an inertia specified in the URDF, but KDL does not     
support a root link with an inertia.  As a workaround, you can add an extra dummy link to your URDF.

The URDF works perfectly fine with RViZ and Joint State Publisher GUI sliders (without MoveIt) and after a while I get the interactive markers in RViZ (with MoveIt) and I am able to move the arm around but it says 'No Planning Library Loaded'. Also system dependencies seem to be satisfied. I'm unable to find out what the exact issue is.


I did binary installation of the MoveIt for Jade. I used this link to install MoveIt. Then I launched the setup assistant and created the config package following this video.

Here are the screenshots of RViz and Terminal after launching demo.launch :

If this is the output right after you've used the Setup Assistant (ie: you haven't changed anything in the generated launch files), could you please report this at the MoveIt issue tracker? Please mention how you installed MoveIt, and what happened.

@gvdhoorn I have reported this issue to the MoveIt Issue Tracker. I have mentioned there about the steps that I followed. I'll edit the question here as well.
