Hey if you ever got this work let me know. I'm trying to use the viewer and I keep getting this message: checking for module 'openni-dev' -- package 'openni-dev' not found -- Could NOT find openni (missing: OPENNI_INCLUDE_DIRS) I have doublechecked to make sure I have full 1.7 PCL installed.

I have met the same problem. How can this be solved?

I disagree that this is a pcl question - my pcl is linked and running just fine. But when running catkin_make I get this error. Completely related to ROS.
