So I am following the wiki turtlebot tutorials and have stumbled across this error that I cannot get past.

I enter ( roslaunch turtlebot_rviz_launchers view_robot.launch ) into the terminal on my workstation and rviz starts up just fine. However when I try to start any of the other displays like DepthCloud, Rviz eventually crashes giving me an error. I have tried a number of fixes I have found on the internet but none of them have worked. I am very noobish and any info would help greatly.

An example is displayed below:

turtlebot@turtlebot-Inspiron-5521:~$ roslaunch turtlebot_rviz_launchers view_robot.launch ... logging to /home/turtlebot/.ros/log/dad3552c-9e38-11e3-bc27-6c71d96be85a/roslaunch-turtlebot-Inspiron-5521-21553.log Checking log directory for disk usage. This may take awhile. Press Ctrl-C to interrupt Done checking log file disk usage. Usage is <1GB.
