sr_visualization is a package with GUI plugins which can be used to control the different nodes of the shadow_robot stack. The GUI plugins are programmed in Python and can be started from within rqt. A ROS master must be running before starting rqt. ROS master and rqt can be started by simply typing in linux command line:
and on a new terminal window
The plugins depend on different ROS nodes (e.g. to use sliders to control the hand joints, you need the Hand ROS node to be started), and are available only when those nodes are started. You can check the status of the different important nodes with the Process Monitor plugin in rqt.
To load a plugin select from the plugins menu in rqt.
