Can you give us more information? Which version of ROS are you installing? What sort of system are you installing it on? Version numbers will help us, here.

I solved the problem by running

sudo aptitude install ros-diamondback-openni-kinect

It lets you choose how to resolve these dependencies.

I have the exact same problem. I installed the current version of diamondback today and tried to run "sudo apt-get install ros-diamondback-openni-kinect," which resulted in the exact same error posted above by Rorsak. I looked at "This question" posted above as well. Is there an answer for this? I am running a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.04, Lucid Lynx. I have only installed the pcl_perception_addons stack so far. I tried the source based installation and that also throws errors.
