  1. I set up my computer to accept software from ROS.org

  2. I ran roscore on a new terminal by typing : roscore

3)I installed openNI kinect by typing : sudo apt-get install ros-diamondback-openni-kinect

4)I installed openNi camera by typing : rosmake openni_camera

5)I launched the openNI driver by typing :roslaunch openni_camera openni_node.launch

6)I ran rviz by typing: rosrun rviz rviz

If you would like to view images coming from the kinect camera, follow the instructions posted here: http://www.ros.org/wiki/openni_kinect and here: http://www.ros.org/wiki/openni_camera

which are summarized as follows:

  1. install openni_kinect: sudo apt-get install ros-electric-openni-kinect
  2. run openni: roslaunch openni_launch openni.launch
  3. run image viewer: rosrun image_view image_view image:=/camera/rgb/image_color

Comment by mmwise on 2011-11-04:
are there any errors in the terminal where you called roslaunch openni_camera openni_node.launch?

Comment by bassim on 2011-11-04:
when I typed on a new terminal : rostopic hz/camera/rgb/image_color . I got this : WARNING: topic [/camera/rgb/image_color] does not appear to be published yet

Comment by mmwise on 2011-11-04:
@bassim do you see any errors in the terminal when you roslaunch openni_camera openni_node.launch .. can you rostopic hz /camera/rgb/image_color

Comment by mmwise on 2011-11-02:

First, pasting half of the web into your question doesn't help.

What's this KinectROSPackage thing you're talking about? You should just install openni_kinect from the binaries:

sudo apt-get install ros-electric-openni-kinect

and then use the various nodes it provides.
