Hi, I don't know your purpose of launching openni_launch in specific. But if you just want to get the pointclouds from the kinect. Then you may use

roslaunch openni_camera openni_node.launch


I see many posts on

roslaunch openni_launch openni.launch


doesn't work for many people. I have seen many posts here on the same. It would be great if these problems are consolidated in a troubleshooting section of the tutorial and make it work at that point. Any solution regarding the openni.launch is appreciated.

Thanks, Karthik
