With a friend we are currently working on a school project based on the turtlebot2i. The robot is running under ROS kinetic 16.04.

When we do a roslaunch turtlebot_bringup minimal.launch, we get an error message saying that there is no file called kobuki_interbotix_astra.urdf.xacro in the directory /opt/ros/kinetic/share/turtlebot_description/robots.

For information, the robot got an INTEL NUC - BOXNUC6CAYH as central computer. Everything should have been set up correctly when our school received the robot.

Unfortunatly it seems that this file is missing and after several hours searching on the web and on ROS forum some solution, we did not find suitable solution for our problem.

Does anyone working on this robot did have this problem and if it is the case, how did you manage to resolve it ?

It seems odd that you use minimal.launch from turtlebot_bringup package instead of the one from turtlebot2i_bringup but still find the correct turtlebot urdf description. Have you modified minimal.launch ? Can you provide it please ?
