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-v0.93-5.1.2.1-0-g15f1975.zip 
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
