Hi Mansimar,
The baddrawable error is most likely a graphics card / driver OpenGL
compatibility issue.  can you post some details of the setup you are using
(OS, graphics card and driver)?  Please see
here<http://ros.org/wiki/simulator_gazebo/SystemRequirements>for some
working graphics card/driver combos.

 Im a newbie with ROS and Im trying to run the default gazebo world file
roslaunch gazebo_worlds empty_world.launch
when I try this the GUI shows up and then crashes with the following erroran
Request.136: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter) 0x4400002
do_wait: drmWaitVBlank returned -1, IRQs don't seem to be working correctly.
Try adjusting the vblank_mode configuration parameter.
[gazebo-2] process has died [pid 8925, exit code -11].
log files:

on checking my log file I get the following output

 Unable to find the file ~/.gazeborc. Using default paths. This may
cause OGRE to fail.
directory [/tmp/gazebo-jaimeenk-0] already exists (previous crash?)
but the owner gazebo server (pid=8751) is not running.
deleting the old information of the directory [/tmp/gazebo-jaimeenk-0]
Gazebo successfully initialized

Should I need to define my path for gazebo in the bashrc file?
