I am using Ubuntu 10.10. I installed player 3.0.2 from the source code. I had installed player 2.1.2 before and I uninstalled it by "sudo make uninstall"

This is message I get when I do "playerprint -h localhost -p 6665 -r 5 -i 0 -c 2 laser"

playerc warning   : warning : [Player v.3.0.2] connected on [localhost:6665] with sock 3

On subscribing to laser in playerv I get the following message

PlayerViewer 3.0.2
Connecting to [localhost:6665]
playerc warning   : warning : [Player v.3.0.2] connected on [localhost:6665] with sock 6

Available devices: localhost:6665
laser:0          sicklms200                              ready
playerc error   : timed out waiting for server reply to request laser:0:request:1
playerv : error in /backup/Softwares/player-3.0.2/utils/playerv/pv_dev_laser.c
  libplayerc error: timed out waiting for server reply to request laser:0:request:1

BTW, I tried this sicktoolbox (http://sicktoolbox.sourceforge.net/) and it works perfectly.

Well, technically it did add "Laser initializing"  So it seems like your
laser configuration is OK.  Request 1 in the laser interface is the geometry
request; libplayerc is asking the laser driver for its geometry
configuration and the driver isn't responding.  The driver does support
responding to this message, so something is wrong.

What happens if you subscribe to the laser using playerprint, do you see
laser information?  And do you see the laser scans when you run playerv?
Which operating system are you using, and how did you install Player?  Could
there be remnants of older versions of Player laying around?
