Can you give more information about "but not work correctly" ?
What doesnt work ?
Do you receive images?
Be aware that by default freenect_launch does not enable depth_registration, you can emable it either by modifying the launchfile or using the GUI rqt_reconfigure

Openni provides a driver that works. this is an out of the box solution! just type in your console

Sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-openni-camera
Sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-openni-launch

then u have to change something at the driver: download this driver:https://github.com/avin2/SensorKinect/zipball/unstable

and input the following commands:

cd ~/Downloads
unzip avin2-SensorKinect-v0.93- 
cd avin2-SensorKinect-15f1975/Bin
tar -xjf SensorKinect093-Bin-Linux-x64-v5.1.2.1.tar.bz2
cd Sensor-Bin-Linux-x64-v5.1.2.1
sudo ./install.sh

after that it will work, for a live test of kinect open rviz and add a topic or type in:

roslaunch openni_launch openni.launch

open a new terminal and type in:

rosrun image_view image_view image:=/camera/rgb/image_color

Dear felixwatzlawik, thank you so much that I installed openni successfully but I ran the command roslaunch openni_launch openni.launch it shows [openni.launch] is neither a launch file in package [openni_launch] nor is [openni_launch] a launch file name The traceback for the exception was written
