Great, thanks a lot for the exhaustive tutorial! With NaoQI 1.12.3 I use 
the separate Python SDK, and with that I don't need to touch any 
LD_LIBRARY_PATH for starting the nodes (even works with 64 bit Ubuntu).

If extracted to ~/naoqi/pynaoqi-python-2.7-naoqi-1.12.3, then I only 
need to add that path to my PYTHONPATH, no LD_LIBRARY_PATH required.

After starting the launch files one by one, it's probably worth noting 
the "all in one" teleop_nao_sim.launch in nao_remote as well.

Best regards,
