Hi everyone, here is my problem:

I setup my model using the setup assistant of moveit. Everything seems to work. I export the package, save it under src/ in the catkin_ws/. Then I run "roslaunch my_package demo.launch" .

Here the process starts until the terminal says in green " You can start planning now! " The RViz initializing picture is freezed forever.

However, I get in the terminal "[INFO] [1498661559]: MoveGroup context initialization complete".

What do you think about that? is my PC not strong enough or do I have another problem? Thank you in advance, Stefano

Details:

-I can run RViz stand-alone, no problem.

-I am using a 4 years old laptop, intel i3 quadcore 2.53GHz, geforce 610M.

-I am using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS installed by a friend's usb flashkey

-can I run gazebo if the grafics drivers are not installed?

Complete terminal:

Can you run RViz stand-alone? What sort of hardware are you using? A regular desktop PC, a raspberry pi, something else? Which Linux version is this, how did you install it, do you have the graphics drivers for your video card installed? Please edit your question and add these details.

Comment by Felix_N on 2017-06-28:
I made my robot model using the setup assistant as well. The next message I get after the "You can start planning now" is "loading robot model mybot". So maybe there is something wrong with your robot model. Did you write the urdf file yourself? Have you successfully included it in setup assistant?

Comment by stefano on 2017-06-28:
@gvdhoorn: Thanks for guiding my question. I updated it.

@Felix : Yeah, I dont get "loading robot model mybot". I made the urdf file using the SolidWorks plug-in "export to urdf". I included it successfully in the setup assistant, i can move my joints and see my model. How ever I have some warnings

Comment by stefano on 2017-06-28:
I corrected the errors in the warnings. I have no more warnings. Still no response from RViz. I hope i don't have to reinstall ros ^^.

Comment by gvdhoorn on 2017-06-28:\

can I run gazebo if the grafics drivers are not installed

sometimes. It won't run very well, but it'll probably produce some image.

Comment by gvdhoorn on 2017-06-28:
It might help if you copy-paste the complete terminal output into your question (use the Preformatted Text button (the one with 101010 on it)). Can you tell us anything about the model you're trying to load? How big are the meshes? If they are too detailed, loading can be very slow.

Comment by stefano on 2017-06-28:
in the options within the SlidWorks plug-in I could choose corse meshes or fine meshes. I choose fine... How ever I dont get until the "loading robot model mybot" phase (see terminal in the updated question). In addition i left my computer loading for 3-4 hours with no results.

Comment by stefano on 2017-06-28:
I am going to try anyway with a corse meshing. I keep you updated.

Comment by gvdhoorn on 2017-06-28:
This has probably nothing to do with your problem, but:

MoveGroup debug mode is ON

did you enable this yourself?

Comment by stefano on 2017-06-28:
nope, I did not enable anything. how to disable it?

I now tried with a corse mesh but the result is the same.

Comment by gvdhoorn on 2017-06-29:
Well, by default debug:=false in demo.launch, so I'm wondering how it says 'ON' if that hasn't changed. Can you check demo.launch?

Comment by stefano on 2017-06-29:
I updated the question with the demo.launch. It seems ok " debug="false".

Now when I roslaunch the demo.launch I have to more lines in the terminal (in addition to the terminal I posted). One is saying [INFO] [1498722837.712557891]: Stereo is NOT SUPPORTED

Comment by gvdhoorn on 2017-06-29:
Again: this is probably not the cause of your problem, but I'm just curious now.

And in move_group.launch?

Does the output change if you start it like: roslaunch <your_moveit_cfg> demo.launch debug:=false?

Comment by gvdhoorn on 2017-06-29:
As for your rviz problem: try commenting the part in demo.launch that starts RViz (second to last include). Then start demo.launch. If that is successful, keep it running, then in a separate terminal, start just rviz. Does that work? If so, try adding the MoveIt RViz display.

Comment by gvdhoorn on 2017-06-29:\

geforce 610M

does your laptop have two graphics cards by any chance? So it's using 'nvidia optimus technology'? If so, that could be a problem. Do you have that setup correctly (ie: installed necessary drivers)? Try disabling the Intel video card, just to rule things out.

Comment by gvdhoorn on 2017-06-29:
Btw: an i3 with a geforce 610M is rather low-specced. It's probably possible to get things to run, but for any real use of RViz, Gazebo and / or MoveIt it's probably going to be a tad slow.

Comment by stefano on 2017-06-29:\

  • in move_group.launch debug is false
  • the output is the same adding debug:=false at the end of the command
  • I commented the part which starts RViz, the demo.launch runs successfully. Then in another terminal I run RViz. It is working.

What is the MoveIt RViz display?

Yeah I have nvidia optimus tech. I'll try to disable the Intel video card (I have no Idea how to do such things ^^). Maybe I should install linux in my new laptop which is way more powerful and have only one graphics card.

Please see wiki/rviz/UserGuide - Displays.

that will most likely simplify things significantly.

Guys the problem was the nvidia optimus as gvdhoorn said. I switched the driver from "nvidia binary driver" to "Nouveau display driver (open source)". Now it works fine. So the file were not the problem. Thanks again for your help. It makes things really easier. Have a good day <3

If you have the chance -- and the perseverance -- I would really recommend you try to figure out a way to get optimus to work properly: the nouveau drivers really don't cut it when you start working with any 'real' ROS applications, especially not when you start visualising a lot of data in RViz.
