Hi,

My 1st attempt to install ROS Hydro + Kinect.

After: sudo apt-get install ros-hydro-desktop-full

sudo rosdep init

rosdep update

It seems that I have to install the driver for openni and kinect and that no compiled package exists for hydro. But this command: hg clone h t t p s://kforge.ros.org/openni/drivers tells that I can't go there ... ("Access Denied").

Could someone tell me if I'm wrong (may be, I'm a newbie :) and how to solve this.

Thanks

You should be able to apt-get install ros-hydro-openni-launch (which will include openni-camera, and any other things you need). Drivers for specific hardware are not included in desktop-full.

Kforge is slowly being decommissioned, most ROS code is now on github, and most standard drivers can be found here: https://github.com/ros-drivers
