I would like to remind that I did not concoct the patch, I just found the useful part in the @nodabba comment and highligted it.

Best Regards

So is it possible to put nicolino patch in build ?

cptnapalm commented on 2018-08-28 22:49

Just to be an additional confirmation, the portion of the patch pointed out by nicolino does, in fact, cures the 'png' codec problem during compilation.

Thanks nodabba,

now Gazebo compile and runs with latest boost and ogre.

This part:

did the trick.

I was able to compile and run gazebo with the following modified ogre-1.11.patch: Current patch was lacking of one more fix (see for more info). Thanks @greboide for link.

Last version of gazebo fixes newer boost dependencies and, supposedly, OGRE.

However, whenever I try to run it, the following happens:

[Err] [] Ogre Error:ItemIdentityException: Can not find codec for 'png' image format. Supported formats are: dds ktx pkm. in Codec::getCodec at /build/ogre/src/ogre-1.11.1/OgreMain/src/OgreCodec.cpp (line 66)

I have checked on google and the same problem is reported here:

It says to modify a plugins.cfg as new version of Ogre needs explicit activation of the png images plugin.

Although I found the plugins.cfg file for the general Ogre installation, I could not find the gazebo one.

Any clues?

Best Regards.

for the same problems with Ogre and boost, also the installation of ros-melodic-gazebo-ros goes nuts.


I have installed and test-run (just roscore for now) ROS-MELODIC AND GAZEBO by keeping the old downgrades

Ogre: ogre-1.10.10-3-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz boost: boost-1.66.0-3-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz boost-libs: boost-libs-1.66.0-3-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

and also downgrading

gdbm to gdbm-1.14.1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz


Yep, libreoffice needs newer boost.

Best regards
