I'm at the point, I've tried literally everything for weeks now to get any kind of visualization and no dice because of No devices connected error.
I'm on an intel i7 w/ hd graphics 4k running ubuntu trusty 14.04lts trying to get visualization on ros indigo
First I tried getting it all to run in a virtual machine, I thought that was my big problem that Virtualbox would not recognize USB 3.0 devices. So I abandoned that and partitioned my drive & installed ubuntu. Went through a bunch of stuff trying to get openni and openni2 to work, eventually finding out that that is for the 360 device. So now I tried libfreenect2 & freenect but still can not get passed the no devices connected error.
My lsusb lists the kinect in 3 places as it should. I don't know where to go from here. I tried 'protonect' from libfreenect2 but I get an error about openCL on there.
Can someone walk me through it?

When you download libfreenect2 there's a rules folder. Did you copy the file 90-kinect2.rules in your /etc/udev/rules.d/ folder ? You can run Protonect with cpu from the bin folder, to test if you can visualize the data :
