Is there a way to operate the turtlebot from the keyboard in ROS fuerte? I had been able to do this without a problem in ROS electric using these instructions:

When I upgraded to fuerte I no longer have a turtlebot_teleop package.

For the time being, you can install the brown-remotelab stack on your turtlebot, which contains the teleop_twist_keyboard package

sudo apt-get install ros-fuerte-brown-remotelab

As far as I can see running

rosrun teleop_twist_keyboard

instead of

roslaunch turtlebot_teleop keyboard_teleop.launch

should do the trick. Follow the instructions on-screen to control your turtlebot.
