Please forgive this poorly formatted question, but Turtlebot on Gazebo is not operational. It used to be (in my experience at least October 10) working using turtlebot_teleop (which still publishes topic turtlebot_node/cmd_vel with certain values now). So I'm wondering there might have been update on turtlebot / gazebo side that could be causing this. I'm trying to use the packages that I haven't modified. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.

Environment: Ubuntu 11.04/10.10, ROS electric

How to reproduce:

roslaunch turtlebot_gazebo turtlebot_empty_world.launch
roslaunch turtlebot_teleop keyboard_teleop.launch

@Martin Günther thanks, do you mean you also experience similar/same phenom? If so do you start seeing it recently or from before? Just asking for giving more info for developers.

I mean I experience the same phenomenon (simulated turtlebot doesn't react when running above commands). Doesn't work now (turtlebot_simulator 0.1.13), used to work a few weeks ago.
