Hi i am using ros fuerte in ubuntu 12.04 on a VM. after running openni.launch, everything seems to be working normally, topics are published. However, when i run image_view or use rviz to display, no image is produced. rostopic list shows that the topic is eing published. i suspect that it might be due to no data being published in the topics and therefore results in the lack of image being produced. anyone happen to encounter this problem before and can share how to resolve this issue? i tried using the freenect stack and everything works fine. only have this issue when using the openNI stack

Does openni give you any errors? Those will help diagnose your problem. And are you using the Kinect or another RGBD sensor?

try $rostopick echo <topic_name> to sure that msgs had published

@lifelonglearner I'd suggest using roswtf to diagnose your problem. I doubt your problem is related to daidalos's problem, could you start a new question and post the result of roswtf there?
