Im trying to run a simple autonomous SLAM session. When I run my world, the turtle bot starts moving in a weird north/east kinda of trajectory. Even before the simulation node is started... When I start the simulation node, it changes nothing.

Heres an image of the RVIS map: Heres an image of the gazebo screen (the robots is the little dot in the right site: Heres an image of the terminals:

First I run: roslaunch turtlebot3_gazebo warehouse.launch to open the world in gazebo - That this is where the robot starts moving. Which it shouldnt... right?

then: roslaunch turtlebot3_slam turtlebot3_slam.launch slam_methods:=gmapping Lastly i run the simulation: roslaunch turtlebot3_gazebo turtlebot3_simulation.launch

Once the robot runs into a wall, it stands still for a while and then start spinning slowly. But nothing more

Any helps is appreciated guys :) Anything youve seen before? Im running ROS melodic on ubuntu 18.04

I downgraded to Ubuntu 16.04 and ROS Kinetic, and then everything worked as it should. Hope it helps some of you :)
