So I am trying to create a simulation in which I control a bunch of pioneer2dx robots and I need stuff thats in gazebo_ros_pkgs to move them they way I want (DiffDrive plugin). However it seems that there is no version for ros kinetic & gazebo 7. I tried downloading the jade version but I can't even do that. I'll type "sudo apt-get install ros-jade-gazebo-ros-pkgs", only to get the following error:

E: Unable to locate package ros-jade-gazebo-ros-pkgs

How do I get the gazebo_ros_pkgs. Please help! Thanks.

This tutorial has the instructions on installing Gazebo ROS packages and this tutorial has information on choosing a combination of ROS and Gazebo versions. If you're not locating the packages, you probably want to setup your sources and keys first.
