Hi,

I'm new to the kinect development and I was trying to install the openni_kinect stack. However when I tried to follow the instructions to install it ( http://www.ros.org/wiki/openni_kinect ) it seems like the branch for the drivers ( https://kforge.ros.org/openni/drivers ) has been closed. Is it possible to just download the openni drivers from the Openni site and link it to ros? If so how?

Thanks.

Is there anything particular I should be looking at? That is the site I have been using, and I was referring to Step 1. hg clone https://kforge.ros.org/openni/drivers and I get a server error because the branch has been closed.

Hi,

I just tested again on my computer and this line does work: hg clone https://kforge.ros.org/openni/drivers

May be you should just try again / check your network? Can you access the url via your webbrowser, etc...

Cheers,

I am absolutely baffled. I swear this wasn't working 2 hours ago, but it seems to be working now. Thanks!
