The openni drivers are not provided by default on Ubuntu and are not part of "desktop-full". I think you will want the openni_camera and openni_launch packages:

$ mkdir ~/openni_ws
$ cd ~/openni_ws
$ source /path/to/hydro/install/setup.bash
$ rosinstall_generator openni_launch --deps --exclude RPP --tar > openni-hydro.rosinstall
$ wstool init src -j8 openni-hydro.rosinstall
$ rosdep install --from-paths ./src --ignore-src -y
$ catkin_make install
$ source ./install/setup.bash
$ roslaunch openni_launch openni.launch

Another option (for the Kinect) is the libfreenect stack.
