Followed the tutorial up till turtlebot bringup. (apparently i dont have enough karma to post links)

Managed to SSH into the turtle bot laptop, then I tried the turtlebot_bringup minimal.launch and these came out on the terminal non stop

process[rosout-1]: started with pid [7331]
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::runtime_error'
what():  locale::facet::_S_create_c_locale name not valid

Help?

Workstation is running ROS Indigo while the turtlebot laptop is running ROS hydro. Will different version of ROS complicate things? Or did I messed up somewhere during the installation?

It looks like you don't have your locale set properly.

You may want to take a look at the Ubuntu page about generating locale files: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Locale

Or just try setting your locale to the generic C locale (named for the C programming language):

sudo update-locale LANG=C LANGUAGE=C LC_ALL=C LC_MESSAGES=POSIX

export LC_ALL="C" seems to do the trick for me. thank you!
