In Teleoperation chapter:  http://turtlebot3.readthedocs.io/en/latest/teleoperation.html, for every listed remote controller, all operations are marked as [Remote PC]. Should it be [Turtlebot] instead? We need to connect the remote controller directly with TB3, in order to control TB3 via the remote controller. It has nothing to do with the Remote PC. Please clarify this.

The tutorials are designed for you to plug your device joystick into the Remote PC. You can modify the configuration.

With respect to your wiimote issue that doesn't seem to be TurtleBot related. The TurtleBots are running Ubuntu so they should work as any other Ubuntu computer. I'd suggest that you search for similar issues and if nothing is found ask on http://answers.ros.org

One side note:

Here is what I did:

At first, run:

sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-wiimote


rosdep install wiimote


rosmake wiimote

If you've used the binary installations you shouldn't need to use `rosdep` to install dependencies. And the wiimote package is a catkin package so you shouldn't be trying to use `rosmake` to build it. If you're still having trouble when you ask on http://answers.ros.org please make sure to include your full environment setup etc. Including what code you've checked out and what environment setup files you've sourced.

If you can reproduce a problem in the constructor of the Wiimote class, a [ticket on the joystick_drivers repo](https://github.com/ros-drivers/joystick_drivers/issues) is the right place to follow up.
