I have installed Ubuntu 13.04(ARMHF) and Hydro on a Pandaboard. I have been unsuccessful with the openni stack - rostopic list shows one /tf topic and I can't seem to access any of the data within.

The freenect drivers seem better - I am getting a bunch of topics and I can use imageview on the remote to get both rgb and depth fields.

Where I get stuck is in using rviz. I don't know what to pick to view to get a simulated scan like on the turtlebot. I seem to recall something about transforms but I am fuzzy on the details.

I believe you're looking for the depthimage_to_laserscan node.
