I can't get the turtlebot to calibrate using the turtlebot_calibration calibrate.launch file. It just outputs "Still waiting for scan" and I can see that the IR sensor never turns on. The kinect works fine when I've tried gmapping though so I know it does work.

I would guess it's the same issue discussed here:

http://answers.ros.org/question/112391/nothing-published-to-scan-under-hydro/

Nothing is published to /scan (which is required for calibration) unless depth_registration is set to false. You might try:

roslaunch turtlebot_calibration calibrate.launch depth_registration:=false

I can't test it directly because I'm using Kobuki-based turtlebots.
