To whom it may concern,

I have managed to work turtlesim with the turtlesim_teleop_node using a keyboard but require to turn using mouse control.

i have tried to find the method and cannot find one on the internet. I know that ROS has an inbuilt mouse_teleop and i am trying to integrate it with turtlesim.

Any help?


I have tried GitHub Repo and other Ros repositories which i found:

but was still unable to figure out how to work it with turtlesim.

I think you have to work through the Getting Started page and ROS tutorials and try to understand those. And especially this Tutorial about roslaunch.

I don't know on which Topic the turtlebot is listening, but it is most probably not mouse_vel which you would publish on if you use the Launch file in mouse_teleop. You should probably remap to teleop_velocity_smoother/raw_cmd_velas they are doing in all the Launch files here.
