Hey!!

Sorry this may be quite late, however I used this link in another ROS Answer in order to install Turtlebot with ROS-Kinetic. Atleast the install was successful.

Albeit some packages not working, like the dashboard.

Well i have faced the same problem, I did follow all the instructions in the videos, however the installation was for indigo, changing just the word "kinetic" doesn't work so i found a solution, use "apt-cache search ros-kinetic" in terminal. This will show a long list of packages supported by ros kinetic, now look for all turtlebot related packages. To install use the usual "sudo apt-get install pkg_name". You have to install all the packages one by one manually there is no single code line that would install all the packages relate to turtlebot, however you can install all at-once by just adding all the package name next to each other like this

sudo apt-get install pkg_name1 pkg_name2 pkg_name3...............

press "y" to install and then to check installation do this

roslaunch turtlebot_gazebo turtlebot_world.launch

You can also install other packages like this when you are unable to find a source to install.

Hope this helps.

Hi!!!

It seems that the installation of Turtlebot does not have support for Kinetic, the last version with support is Indigo. I hope that this change.

Greetings!!!

Since non-support for Kinetic, just use (for example) Ubuntu 14.04 and ros-indigo-turtlebot* or ros-indigo-kobuki packages. If you have an ARM-based machine running (like RaPi or JetsonTK/TX) there will be unsupported packages too (can't be installed). The basics (especially kobuki_node) will wrk
