Hi, I installed ROS via:

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://packages.ros.org/ros/ubuntu oneiric main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list'
wget http://packages.ros.org/ros.key -O - | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ros-electric-desktop-full
echo "source /opt/ros/electric/setup.bash" >> ~/.bashrc
. ~/.bashrc

Then turtlebot via

sudo apt-get install ssh ros-electric-turtlebot-robot

However when I run the turtlebot simulator via:

roslaunch turtlebot_gazebo turtlebot_empty_world.launch

I get

[turtlebot_gazebo] is not a package or launch file name

Any ideas?

The turtlebot-robot debian doesn't include the turtlebot_simulator package to install this package:

sudo apt-get install ros-electric-turtlebot-simulator-desktop

That doesn't work either, FYI I created and run the setup.sh:

#!/bin/sh
source /opt/ros/electric/setup.bash
export ROS_ROOT=/opt/ros/electric/ros
export PATH=$ROS_ROOT/bin:$PATH
export PYTHONPATH=$ROS_ROOT/core/roslib/src:$PYTHONPATH
export ROS_PACKAGE_PATH=~/ros_workspace:/opt/ros/electric/stacks:$ROS_PACKAGE_PATH

Then installed the extra package:

sudo apt-get install ros-electric-turtlebot-desktop

However I still get the same error when I run the turtlebot simulator via:

roslaunch turtlebot_gazebo turtlebot_empty_world.launch
[turtlebot_gazebo] is not a package or launch file name

Any ideas?
