  • Note that Gazebo may update its model database when it is started for the first time. This may take a few minutes.
  • If your terminal is not already pre-configured with the ROS environment variables, you need to set them in each new terminal you open. Just execute this command *before* you execute any other ROS commands:

$ source /opt/ros/indigo/setup.bash
