When I type in rqt -s turtlebot_dashboard to terminal I get the error

WARNING: Package name "swig-wx" does not follow the naming conventions. It should start with a lower case letter and only contain lower case letters, digits and underscores. WARNING: Package name "swig-wx" does not follow the naming conventions. It should start with a lower case letter and only contain lower case letters, digits and underscores. RosPyPluginProvider.discover() could not find ROS master, all rospy-based plugins are disabled qt_gui_main() found no plugin matching "turtlebot_dashboard"

What do I do to launch the Dashboard?

You could overlook this warning. I get this warning every time and it's not a problem.

I believe Groovy by default assumes a TurtleBot is using a Kabuki base with related drivers and sensors. When using a TurtleBot with the Create base, you'll see errors similar to that in the original post.

For me the key to getting a dashboard up with the Create base is to set the following environment variables on both the robot laptop and the remote workstation:

export TURTLEBOT_BASE=create
export TURTLEBOT_STACKS=circles
export TURTLEBOT_3D_SENSOR=kinect

I can then get a working dashboard by running the following on the robot laptop:

roslaunch turtlebot_bringup minimal.launch

And the following command on my workstation laptop:

roslaunch turtlebot_dashboard turtlebot_dashboard.launch

could not find ROS master, which means the connection between the workstation and the turtlebot laptop is not working. You can check

echo $ROS_MASTER_URI

echo $ROS_HOSTNAME

I'm getting the same errors as smkybear15 regarding: qt_gui_main() found no plugin matching "turtlebot_dashboard". ROS_MASTER_URI and ROS_HOSTNAME are not a problem. What else could be causing this error?
