Newton simulator issue on Ubuntu 18.04

Post by sonny_t » 22 Jan 2020, 12:57

Hello,

When starting the simulation using the Newton physical engine my robot disappears. This happens with any robots even those provided with the software. I just switched from Ubuntu 16.04 to ubuntu 18.04 and had never encountered this problem before. I use the latest version of CoppeliaSim (4.0.0 rev4).

Thank you for your help.

Hello,

thanks for mentioning this. We already had a similar issue in the past, not sure what is the problem. But a work around is to use the Ubuntu16.04 plugin instead (i.e. libsimExtDynamicsNewton.so). Simply copy that plugin to your Ubuntu18.04 installation folder.

Cheers
