I'm trying to run the Turtlebot Simulator, but it only seems to work with ROS Indigo. I tried to follow the methods provided here: https://github.com/jbohren/rosdocked , but I don't seem to understand what to do after I get docker installed. Is there other ways to go about getting my desired setup for Turtlebot?

This will sound like I'm not taking your problem seriously, but the real issue here is that apparently turtlesim doesn't work for you on Kinetic.

Personally I'd want to resolve that issue, instead of having to install Indigo from sources on Xenial, or using a Docker container. Both ..

.. of which will probably require you to have to resolve quite some additional issues before you can do what you set out to do (ie: use turtlesim).

turtlesim is relased on Kinetic, so I'd expect it to work. Can you explain what your problems were?

I'm talking about the TurtleBOT simulator. Here's a link: http://learn.turtlebot.com/2015/02/03/2/

You're completely right, that is a different package. My apologies.

However, turtlebot_simulator has also been released for Kinetic, so it should work. If it doesn't, that would be something to fix.
