I have installed ros-kinetic-desktop-full and ros-kinetic-turtlebot-* on an Arch Linux. and when i try to run the "roslaunch turtlebot_gazebo turtlebot_world.launch" it launches with no errors but the world only contains the turtlebot,ground,a light source and no other objects.

I can confirm gazebo loads the world correctly when i run "gazebo ./" and loads all the objects except the turtlebot.

some maybe related packages versions: gazebo v8.0.0 protobuf 3.2.0 ros-kinetic-gazebo-* 2.5.8

I found out I can successfully load world by running

roscore &
rosrun gazebo_ros gazebo /opt/ros/kinetic/share/turtlebot_gazebo/worlds/ 
roslaunch turtlebot_gazebo turtlebot_world.launch

Even though I see this error

/opt/ros/kinetic/lib/gazebo_ros/gzserver: line 37: 17949 Segmentation fault      (core dumped)     GAZEBO_MASTER_URI="$desired_master_uri" gzserver $final[gazebo-1] process has died [pid 17754, exit code 139, cmd /opt/ros/kinetic/lib/gazebo_ros/gzserver -e ode /opt/ros/kinetic/share/turtlebot_gazebo/worlds/ __name:=gazebo __log:=/home/mak/.ros/log/4b042878-1643-11e7-9ed2-681729def242/gazebo-1.log].log file: /home/mak/.ros/log/4b042878-1643-11e7-9ed2-681729def242/gazebo-1*.log

while running roslaunch above, world loads correctly and I can run simulation

It's not the solution I was looking for... but at least it's working for now.
