Hello All,

Working in Indigo on Ubuntu 14.04 I cannot get my kinect to work when using

roslaunch openni_launch openni.launch

It only gives

[ INFO] [1457006309.632299424]: No devices connected.... waiting for devices to be connected

But the kinect is working perfectly with

roslaunch freenect_launch freenect.launch

What could be the problem?

Thanks in advance, Sietse

The problem was that I didn't read the documentation of the ROS package openni_camera properly:(.

In that documentation there is a section: Use Kinect on Ubuntu with OpenNI

In a blog that is referred to it is described that you have to install a special version of openni and a sensor module.

I followed the recipe and it works!
