Hey,

i'm trying to install openNI electric package, but I getting this errors:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

Sometimes the package repository gets into a confused state while being updated.

Usually, these problems go away if you try again later.

Your Problem sounds quite similar to this one: unmet-dependency-problem-while-installing-electric

Did you manually install pcl and/or eigen? It may help if you try to install some of the needed packages alone to find the root cause of the problem as they may all depend on the same conflicting package.

For example try: apt-get install ros-electric-perception-pcl

If that fails with a similar error, you can check the next level by picking one of the missing dependencies of perception-pcl.

ros-electric was just updated. Make sure to do an apt-get update before you run any apt-get install or apt-get upgrade commands.

I use apitude instead of apt-get and works.

Now when i try to compile everything i can't build this:

Build failures: image_view image_proc

Is this normal?

rosrun openni_tracker openni_tracker
[rosrun] Couldn't find executable named openni_tracker below /home/gquintela/openni_kinect/openni_kinect/openni_tracker
[rosrun] Found the following, but they're either not files, 
[rosrun] or not executable:
[rosrun]   /home/gquintela/openni_kinect/openni_kinect/openni_tracker

I really need help here.
