TurtleBot Service Crashing [closed]

I am using ROS Groovy on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. I am programming in C++

My problem is that turtlebot service is crashing frequently whenever I run a specific node. The icon of TurtleBot on the Top-Right side remains white, showing that service is still running but the robot doesn't move when the velocity is published.

I think the problem is due to the sockets in my node because I have run some other nodes and the robot work fines. I have tried both, turtlebot bringup and turtlebot service.

How should I stop the turtlebot service or turtlebot bringup from being crashed?

What do you mean by turtlebot service? Do you mean ubuntu daemon turtlebot service?

I meant, the turtlebot_bringup service.

I don't get what you meant by turtlebot_bringup service. Where and how did you install ROS? What do you mean by the icon of turtlebot on the top-right side remains white? Could you explain about your environment in detail?

Okay so, we installed this Linux which had already ROS integrated in it. It is customized for Turtlebot. It came with our turtlebot. turtlebot_bringup is a package that initiates our turtlebot's motors. We need to run it in order to initialize it. I hope I've made myself clear.

Btw, the 'icon on top' is just a shortcut for this 'bringup' package. Nothing else :)

turtlebot desktop bringup service is a legacy program which stop supporting. I would suggest you to start turtlebot via terminal only..
