Hi Everyone, I installed the TurtleBot from source since I need to rebuild some source files from the turtlebot and I have gazebo&gazebo-ros-pkgs installed from the pre-compiled binaries. Is there any conflict to mix up source and binaries for gazebo&gazebo-ros-pkgs&turtlebot? Do I need to install everything from source to avoid any conflict? I just recompiled some source code from the turtlebot and I observed that there were no changes. It seems that gazebo ignores the new library file Thanks for any help with this issue

Having both version of deb and source should not conflict each other. Source version should overlay the deb version. I suggests you to make sure you have sourced the proper setup.bash where the source version is compiled.

Hi jihoonl and thanks for your reply.I made some changes on gazebo_ros_create.cpp file (file belongs to turtlebot) and compiled with catkin_make (I sourced the proper setup.bash before compiling) and verified that the was updated. Then I ran my turtlebot simulation and nothing change (same results). Even I deleted this file (lib) from devel/lib folder and

Hm that's weird. Did you try to remove deb version and only use source version?

I am using gazebo &gabezo-ros-pack deb version and just turtlebot from source. I need to do a test that is removing the deb version of gazebo&gazebo-ros-pack and reinstalling from source then recompile again and see what happens. I will let you know the results. Thanks jihoonl for your reply!
