I'm trying to use a kinect xbox360 with hydro on ubuntu 12.04. I have installed openni and openni-tracker.
The kinect is plugged in and powered on (blinking green light). When running
lsusb, I do not see the expected three Microsoft devices
Bus 002 Device 009: ID 045e:02ae Microsoft Corp. Bus 002 Device 008: ID 045e:02ad Microsoft Corp. Bus 002 Device 007: ID 045e:02b0 Microsoft Corp.
lsusb -t, I do see a device, with device ID that changes when plugging in/ unplugging the kinect (I also see a different device ID when plugging in a USB drive to test...).
I thought it might be a permissions issue, so I've added my user name to the "dialout" group
sudo adduser username dialout and logged out... without a change in behaviour.
Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.
This Kinect was working fine yesterday... I currently have Hydro installed on a removable hotswappable drive and am trying to use this on a different "tower" although the hard-drive is the same...
Issue resolved. It turns out that the USB ports on the front and back of my PC tower were not supplying enough power... even with the Kinect's power supply. Using a powered USB hub between the Kinect and the USB ports did the trick.

@joe.s: I'd recommend posting your edit as a an answer and then accepting your own answer. That makes the fact that this issue is resolved much more clear when only looking at the question list.
