I'm trying to:

rosrun dynamic_reconfigure reconfigure_gui

in following the instructions here to configure my kinect:

however, the gui window that comes up is blank?! (no controls or fields, unlike what is shown in the example on the link above). Any idea what could be going on? I'm able to run rviz and have qt4 installed. I'm running on diamondback with ubuntu 11.04.

Thanks, Walt

walt@T5500:~/ros_workspace$ roslaunch openni_camera openni_node.launch the kinect is identified, serial number listed, and rgb and depth frame id's exist. However, the red laser on the kinect doesn't come on! No data is published from the camera. I've had the kinect sending data recently...

It sounds like you have an independent problem with your Kinect. I suggest that you ask that with more details in a seperate question after looking for similar problems from other users.
