During the "rosinstall ~/ros turtlebot.rosinstall" part the installation got stuck on

[perception_pcl] Installing (None) to /home/owner/ros/perception_pcl

It is possible that the application was waiting for some input (e.g. password). You can run the rosinstall command with --verbose, that way you should get more information.

You can also try to run:

svn checkout

and see whether this gets stuck.

Please report the issue if you find out, so we can fix rosinstall.

Are you installing the Electric sources on Ubuntu 12.04?

For 12.04 (Precise), you need ROS Fuerte.
