What is the right way to setup Xtion Pro Live with Ubuntu 14.04? (later on I wanrt to use it with ROS) All How-To's found in internet refer to http://openni.org which is down. The new site for openNI2 is http://structure.io/openni but the information provieded there does not help me. I tried many things but seems to be that I'm to stupid to get it to work. What I'm doing wrong, what should I do?
What do I need? openNI1 or openNI2? Do I need to install with apt-get or build from source. Do I need to install this sensor driver: https://github.com/PrimeSense/Sensor (building fails for some reason). I'm totally desperate and confused due to the both version 1 and 2 from openNI.
// Here is my connected sensor

// Here is the sample I used
