My user name in my ubuntu laptop is ABC\ayush.g and the gazebo is crashing with error msg as follows:

    My user name is ABC\ayush.g. So the folder that exists is

    /tmp/gazebo-ABC\\ayush.g-rtshaderlibcache

    Ok, in the initial post you said the user name is ABC/ayush.g with a forward /, but in the latest comment you say it has a backwards \. Can you confirm which it is?
