Use this launch file:

   <!-- start gazebo with an empty plane -->
   <param name="/use_sim_time" value="true" />

   <node name="gazebo" pkg="gazebo" type="gazebo" args="$(find gazebo_worlds)/worlds/" respawn="false" output="screen"/>

   <include file="$(find turtlebot_gazebo)/launch/robot.launch"/>

Note that the solution above doesn't work for ROS Indigo and above. I got this to work:

<include file="$(find gazebo_ros)/launch/willowgarage_world.launch">

Good luck!
