Hi, I assembled a Turtlebotv1 on Create and using kinect as a 3D sensor, Also I am running ROS Indigo on Xubuntu 14.04. I also got Powersensor board manufactures and using ADXRS613 gyro. I am trying to calibrate the Turtlebot and run

roslaunch turtlebot_calibration calibrate.launch

First of all I have to keep pretty far from the wall like around half a meter for it to even start calibration. Also I am getting following warnings

[ WARN] [1446086529.511185488]: Could not find any compatible depth output mode for 1. Falling back to default depth output mode 1.
[ INFO] [1446086529.534847605]: rgb_frame_id = 'camera_rgb_optical_frame'

[ WARN] [1446086529.560110529]: Using default parameters for IR camera calibration.

Then I get following output

It does start to rotate but never stops and then starts outputting "Please point me at a wall". I can see the kinect is turned on as I see a red light in one of the lenses. I have checked the forum and my calibrate.launch file is already modified as discussed in http://answers.ros.org/question/54279... and http://answers.ros.org/question/64301... . I have also tried roslaunch turtlebot_bringup 3dsensor.launch it works but I get the same calibration and depth setting warning and I can see the image when I run roslaunch turtlebot_rviz_launchers view_robot.launch. So I am completely clueless regarding what is going on and how I can fix it. I will really appreciate any help regarding this matter.

Thanks, TM
