Turtlebot does not appear in the environment after uploading all the packages in rosject

Hello, I did the navigation in 5 days tutorial and now I want to do the same in a new project the same. I downloaded all the fils from: Bitbucket and imported in my project. I did compile and sourced the setup.bash file. However after launching the project the turtlebot does not appear in the environment.

Could you please help me to figure out what is the problem, and how i could solve it?

Thank you very much!

Hi @manukyananush88 ,

There might be an issue due to missing packages, I can see hokuyo was not found, for example.
This could prevent the robot to be spawned. Make sure you have it installed or compiled first.

You could try compiling it using this repo: Bitbucket

But I also recommend to try the ready-to-use simulation from the menu, it could save you some time configuring the simulation, so you can go straight to the navigation code.
