I'm experiencing problems installing turtlebot 2 on indigo in a Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty). I'm following the installation tutorial documented at . When installing the workspaces (point 4) I do:

$ mkdir ~/turtlebot

$ cd ~/turtlebot

$ wstool init src -j5 source ~/kobuki/devel/setup.bash

$ rosdep install --from-paths src -i -y

the last command fails and I get:

~/turtlebot$ rosdep install --from-paths src -i -y

ERROR: the following packages/stacks could not have their rosdep keys resolved to system dependencies:

turtlebot_stdr: Cannot locate rosdep definition for [stdr]

turtlebot_dashboard: Cannot locate rosdep definition for [create_dashboard]

turtlebot_gazebo: Cannot locate rosdep definition for [create_gazebo_plugins]

Has anyone experimented the same problem? any hint?

That's what I did at the end. it works for now but I still have problem with Kinect, even though Asus xtion pro works well. The option "-r" just ignores the errors and keep installing the required dependencies.
