I'm following the Turtlebot tutorial here: I'm trying to launch the dashboard, but it doesn't work and I get the output below. However, I am able to teleoperate my robot with the keyboard so the connection is functional. How can I fix this? I'm using Fuerte and my environment vars have been set as in the tutorial.

 $ roslaunch turtlebot_dashboard turtlebot_dashboard.launch

Check the given logfiles please. exit code 1 hints at an error produced by the program.

Where are the logfiles located? The path "home/bennie/.ros" doesn't exist, and I've searched for rqt_gui-1.log and nothing was returned.

Oh my, forget my question. I was following the groovy tutorial, but I have fuerte. I'm sorry!
