Hello, I am having trouble installing openni drivers. When I follow the instructions "hg clone" the response is: destination directory: drivers abort: Permission denied. If I got to the website , it turns out to be a openni-drivers:log. Ive tried several times over a period of time so now I'm not sure what to do. I know that this issue was address last June, but answers given didn't help me out. Any suggestions?

Thanks, Gene

Where are you checking this code out on your computer?

Is suspect the error is on your side and you don't have writing permissions in the location that you are checking out. (It works for me without errors.)

I changed directories and it worked. Thanks for the help.

Now when I installed the Openni drives and I cd drivers and perform a make it enters the openni directory and states it cannot find the git command. What is the git command?

git is a version control system. sudo apt-get install git should install it.
