Hi everyone,

I'm trying to install the openni drivers followind this guide:

In section 3.2 step one they say to type in terminal:

      hg clone
      cd drivers
      make install

Because of some "Permission Denied" I added sudo command before make and make install. There is still a problem, in sudo make install after a while is displayed:

      sudo /bin/bash ./CONTROL/openni_postinst configure
      Failed: Failed to write to the file!
      make: *** [install_openni] Error 255

In file ./CONTROL/openni_postinst the commands at configure session are:

      /usr/bin/niReg -r /usr/lib/ /etc/openni
      /usr/bin/niReg -r /usr/lib/ /etc/openni
      /usr/bin/niReg -r /usr/lib/ /etc/openni

Obviously also trying to execute the three command directly in the terminal it still gives me the error.

Anyone knows how to solve this problem? It seems that I don't have the permission to write to a file, but since I don't know where /usr/bin/niReg wants to write I can't do anything.

Any help would be appreciated.

I suggest you try the openni mailing list on the wiki page.
