Iterate quickly on design concepts and control strategies with Ignition's rich suite of tools, libraries, and cloud services.
Gazebo (formerly known as Ignition ) is an open source robotics simulator maintained by Open Robotics .
Through Gazebo, users have access to high fidelity physics, rendering, and sensor models. Additionally, users and developers have multiple points of entry to simulation, including a graphical user interface, plugins, and asynchronous message passing and services.
Gazebo brings a fresh approach to simulation with a complete toolbox of development libraries and cloud services to make simulation easy. Iterate fast on your new physical designs in realistic environments with high fidelity sensor streams. Test control strategies in safety, and take advantage of simulation in continuous integration tests.
Note: This is a beta release, do expect bugs and limitations. If you encounter any, please do report it .
Install Gazebo from a terminal,
snap install gazebo --edge
Test your installation,
gazebo.gz gazebo shapes.sdf
If you are following the Gazebo 'Getting Started' documentation, you can replace the entire 'Step 1: Install' with the snap command and resume at 'Step 2: Run'.

Swap out openSUSE_Leap_15.5 for openSUSE_Leap_15.4 or openSUSE_Tumbleweed if you’re using a different version of openSUSE.
With the repository added, import its GPG key:
sudo zypper --gpg-auto-import-keys refresh
Finally, upgrade the package cache to include the new snappy repository:
sudo zypper dup --from snappy
Snap can now be installed with the following:
sudo zypper install snapd
You then need to either reboot, logout/login or source /etc/profile to have /snap/bin added to PATH.
Additionally, enable and start both the snapd and the snapd.apparmor services with the following commands:
