I've just install ROS-Diamondback and Openni_kinect. I've did everything told on wikis. I've install this both manual and with package, but everytime I don't receive any data from sensor. If I do roslaunch openni_camera openni_node.launch, this happen...

auto-starting new master process[master]: started with pid [2247] ROS_MASTER_URI=http://localhost:11311 setting /run_id to e639cd8c-b3a9-11e0-8766-4c0f6ed792e5 process[rosout-1]: started with pid [2260] started core service [/rosout] process[openni_node1-2]: started with pid [2263] process[kinect_base_link-3]: started with pid [2264] process[kinect_base_link1-4]: started with pid [2265] process[kinect_base_link2-5]: started with pid [2266] process[kinect_base_link3-6]: started with pid [2267] [ INFO] [1311260319.304629415]: [/openni_node1] Number devices connected: 1 [ INFO] [1311260319.305017698]: [/openni_node1] 1. device on bus 003:06 is a Xbox NUI Camera (2ae) from Microsoft (45e) with serial id 'A00364A13327050A' [ INFO] [1311260319.308811029]: [/openni_node1] searching for device with index = 1 [ INFO] [1311260319.359187371]: [/openni_node1] Opened 'Xbox NUI Camera' on bus 3:6 with serial number 'A00364A13327050A' [ INFO] [1311260319.382045241]: rgb_frame_id = '/openni_rgb_optical_frame' [ INFO] [1311260319.385222797]: depth_frame_id = '/openni_depth_optical_frame'

Everything seems to work fine but when I do rostopic echo /camera/rgb/image_color, no data is streamed. Though if I run libfreenect or windows API, Kinect works perfectly...

Any idea how to solve this?

I got it working but I had an eSata port on my laptop.

Here it explains!

And what happen if you try:

rosrun image_view image_view image:=/camera/rgb/image_color

mm... looking around this is a related problem. Here and Here. But unfortunately no answers.

Nothing. A gray window open but no image or any kind of data. It's the same thing when using rviz. I've install libusb1.08 but it didn't change anything. I'm using USB 3.0 and I read it might cause problem...
