turtlebot not moving with teleop in indigo

I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 14 and ROS Indigo today so I could get going with Turtlebot. I'm using Gazebo 2.2.3.

I am working through the turtlebot tutorial, and so far everything is fine to this point: http://wiki.ros.org/turtlebot_gazebo/Tutorials/indigo/Explore%20the%20Gazebo%20world For instance, the Stage Simulator worked great.

For the world simulation, I have entered the following:

roslaunch turtlebot_gazebo turtlebot_world.launch
roslaunch turtlebot_teleop keyboard_teleop.launch

Nodes: /bumper2pointcloud /cmd_vel_mux /depthimage_to_laserscan /gazebo /laserscan_nodelet_manager /mobile_base_nodelet_manager /robot_state_publisher /rosout /turtlebot_teleop_keyboard

The Gazebo screen is up, I see the turtlebot in its little room, I get the following output on the teleop screen when I press different buttons: image description

The problem is, the turtle is not moving. Unlike the problem at the following link, I do not have multiple distributions of ROS on my system: http://answers.ros.org/question/29983/turtlebot_teleop-not-working-properly/

The turtle is not up against an object in the world but sitting there in open space.

Things generally seem to be working: when I launche turlebot_world.launch, it says:

[spawn_turtlebot_model-4] process has finished cleanly

On the other hand I do get one error during initialization:

Error [SDF.cc:788] Missing element description for [pointCloudCutoffMax]

turtlebot not moving with teleop in indigo

tl;dr
Running the simulation of turtlebot in Gazebo, I can't get the turtlebot to move with the turtlebot_teleop package. I launch the appropriate nodes, the right windows come up, and when I hit the q/w/e keys, nothing happens.
