The openni_kinect driver worked well on my computer, with Diamondback and Ubuntu 10.04 x64. But now when I try to start it, it gives an error, which is the same as in this thread openni launching errors

None of the solutions could solve the problem for me.

Before the error appears, I cleaned and reinstalled perception_pcl stack and perception_pcl_addons stack. Not sure if this is related to the error.(I did rosmake openni_kinect and openni_camera)

Here is the output

did you install it from source? I'm just guessing but you could try to install by "sudo apt-get install ros-diamondback-openni-kinect"... then don't rosmake it and just run "roslaunch openni_camera openni_node.launch".

Yes I installed it from source.

Not sure why, but "sudo apt-get install ros-diamondback-openni-kinect" did the trick.

Thanks guys!

I think your error is different than the ones in the other thread. The looked more like hardware problems.

I looks as something is misconfigured somehow. As far as I know the params that are accessed (producing the errors) are the ones that you can dynamic_reconfigure for the image streams. My guess is something there went wrong.

A quick grep revealed they aren't directly in the node code. I can't check more from here. You could search for them yourself or wait for someone who knows where they should have been configured.
