If you know about TurtleBot, scroll down to see my errors when trying to run TurtleBot.
How do you use the iRobot Create 2, an Ubuntu laptop running ROS Kinetic and a Kinect v1 together? I tried so many different methods and they all failed! I have very, very bad knowledge with ROS because I got it a few weeks ago. Can some please help me ASAP???!? And I also want to run RViz and navigate around the house. Thanks! (By the way, I also have rtabmap-ros for Kinect and that works really well, but the Create 2 does not!)
Edit: I also have tried the TurtleBot software, fail--- and some other ones--- fail.
Edit 2: I have tried on a Windows Desktop not running ROS and it works perfectly!
Edit 3: I think most of the errors I get are from catkin_make where I run into cmake errors and stuff like "Package not found: ros/time.h" and some other errors. I also have a Kinect 2 I can work with if my Kinect 1 fails, but the iRobot Create is still not working!!!
Edit 4: I tried catkin_makeing the Turtlebot things (I don't know if it's compatible with a Create 2), but all I get is:

This workspace contains non-catkin packages in it, and catkin cannot build
  a non-homogeneous workspace without isolation.  Try the
  'catkin_make_isolated' command instead.

Then, when I run catkin_make_isolated I get:

error: #error This file requires compiler and library support for the ISO C++ 2011 standard. This support must be enabled with the -std=c++11 or -std=gnu++11 compiler options.

Then tons of more errors. I tried running it with both of the options above, but all I get is:

catkin_make_isolated -std=gnu++11

catkin_make_isolated: error: unrecognized arguments: -std=gnu++11

Edit 5: I have ROS Kinetic Kame so that's probably why nothing at all is supported. I would really like some updates if TurtleBot can work with Kinetic Kame, because it's not for me!
Help please?!??!!???
Edit 6: I'm getting a Kobuki (hopefully later on today) and I made a new forum. Thanks!
