Using Gazebo and Linux

shen85
Hi All,

I know there is something called mailing list etiquette which requires me to search if my questions were being answered. But i have a nagging feeling that the questions i will be asking are very "newbie" and "completely no idea what i am getting into" questions as i have not gotten the program n LINUX and i am just preparing myself for it.

Firstly, i have been looking around and it seems that gazebo cannot run on WINDOWS unless you do 'special' things to it like VMWare or running it as a CD. So can i say that there is no WINDOWS version at all?

Secondly, if there is no windows version, means i have to use LINUX. Any basic commands i should know to get me up and running in LINUX when using gazebo?

Thirdly, as i have not actually seen gazebo work on the LINUX yet, can anyone please tell me which is the language i should be writing in for gazebo?

Fourthly, i know that player and gazebo are linked. Can i say that player simulates the robot and gazebo simulates the environment?

Lastly, i would like to apologise again if these questions were being asked before and i humbly ask for your help!

Rgds.

Hello,

Yes, Gazebo runs only on Linux.

I would recommend reading some Linux beginner guides, which can easily
be found using google.

Gazebo is written i C++ and provides a C shared memory interface. You
can also communicate with gazebo via Player. I like C and would
recommend you use it too.
