rosrun rviz rviz [ INFO] [1322561467.803234807]: rviz revision number 1.6.7 [ INFO] [1322561467.803351442]: ogre_tools revision number 1.6.2 [ INFO] [1322561467.803374070]: compiled against OGRE version 1.7.3 (Cthugha) [ INFO] [1322561467.946771146]: Loading general config from [/home/alex/.rviz/config] [ INFO] [1322561467.946953292]: Loading display config from [/home/alex/.rviz/display_config] [ INFO] [1322561467.972674791]: RTT Preferred Mode is PBuffer. The program 'rviz' received an X Window System error. This probably reflects a bug in the program. The error was 'BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter)'. (Details: serial 22 error_code 9 request_code 137 minor_code 3) (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously; that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it. To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
I got this error when I incorrectly compiled rviz using:
rosmake rviz rviz
You’ll want to re-compile it correctly, with only 1 input as followed:
Now when you run it, everything should be working.
