Hi, I have Ubuntu 18.04 and ROS melodic installed. I am trying to install turtle bot 3 software to ROS, but i only find the instruction for ROS indigo here: http://wiki.ros.org/turtlebot/Tutorials/indigo/Turtlebot%20Installation is there a version of turtle bot software that works with melodic, or where can i go to download ROS indigo? i try downloading previous ROS on Ubuntu 18.04 and it doesn't seems to work.

Also looking for the "correct" answer for this question. But I did setup turtlbot3 for navigation task using this repo: https://github.com/ROBOTIS-GIT/turtlebot3

Although the repo assumes kinetic, one could paste one package at a time into the workspace and see if it fits with Melodic.

I included these packages: turtlebot3_fake turtlebot3_gazebo turtlebot3_simulations turtlebot3_navigation. I could not get gmapping to work but I could use an older laptop to map anyway.

I'm having the same problems with the same versions, and I'm not able to apt-get install any of those turtlebot3 packages. Browsing around the internet, it sounds like the turtlebot team is not supporting specific versions of ROS anymore, but I don't know how that affects installation.

Will your requirements satisfy by turtlebot3? Turtlebot3 is a new version of turtlebot.

If you want to install turtlebot3 ros package on your system, there are two ways:

  1. Install as a binary package.

If you want to install it as a binary package, open your terminal and run the following command

sudo apt-get install ros-melodic-turtlebot3-*

  1. The second method is to install the package from source. For that you need to clone the following Github package https://github.com/ROBOTIS-GIT/turtlebot3 into the 'src' folder of you catkin workspace and build the workspace using catkin build or catkin_make
