I was a user of gazebo2.xx for a while as it came along with my ros indigo. Recently I understood that gazebo7 has very good user environment and tools to set up the model easily and hence I installed is using the command sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-gazebo7-ros . Now I have trouble opening turtlebot gazebo launch file. I understood that it got removed and when i tried to install it using sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-turtlebot-gazebo, it couldn't install due to dependency issues. I'm not sure about the source installation. I know only one method of source installation where I do git clone, give a rosdep update and install from source ignoring src etc...and this failed to install turtlebot_gazebo package as well. Not sure what am doing, but i want to use the turtlebot gazebo package. Can I not use the package with gazebo7? Can anybody help???

I also got the same issue. For me just switching too Gazebo version 2 worked .... Unfortunately the turtlebot Tutorial and in particular

sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-turtlebot-gazebo

just works for Gazebo version 2.

@Markus, I had some gazebo-ros-control issues as well... I just formatted my whole PC and re-installted ROS and turtlebot packages. I think it would be better to use turtlebot packages with Gazebo 2.xx itself. Jumping to gazebo-7 and coming back wasn't a good idea is what I feel.
