Hi all,

I installed ROS Indigo in Ubuntu 14.04 and the RVIZ version is 1.11.15. When I run rviz and try to add Image or Camera display type, RVIZ crashes giving following output:

Segmentation Fault (Core Dumped)

Although I am able to add PointCloud2 display type without any issues.
I have NVIDIA drivers version 367.27.

Update - 1
I get the following output after building RVIZ from source and running with GDB. The segmentation fault occurs when I try to add the Camera display type to RVIZ:

Probably the easiest way to diagnose this is to build RViz from sources with -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug and then run it in GDB. Without a backtrace we'd need a lucky guess to resolve your problem.

Comment by Naman on 2016-11-14:
Thanks. I have updated the question with the output!

Comment by gvdhoorn on 2016-11-14:
Thanks, that's going in the right direction. Could you trigger the SEGFAULT once more, and now, at the gdb prompt, enter bt. Then press enter. Then add the backtrace to your question description.

Comment by Naman on 2016-11-14:
Hey, added the backtrace!

The problem was that RVIZ was compiled against Qt4 whereas when I try to load an image/ camera/ depthcloud in RVIZ, it finds Qt5 which was present because I installed opencv 2.4.10 whereas ROS comes with opencv 2.4.8. So, there was a qt conflict because of multiple versions of opencv. I uninstalled opencv 2.4.10 and then also uninstalled ROS with all its dependencies to do a clean install. After installing ROS again, it worked. Hope it helps!
