I'm trying to do SLAM-mapping using a Turtlebot. The kinect works, but RVIZ doesn't recieve any data from it. I have the following errors:

error 1 (in dashboard):

Node: /rviz_1326231834235022764 Time: 1326233463.821563932 Severity: Warn Location: /opt/ros/electric/stacks/geometry/tf/include/tf/message_filter.h:MessageFilter<m>::checkFailures:481 Published Topics: /rosout, /initialpose, /move_base_simple/goal

MessageFilter [target=/map ]: Dropped 100.00% of messages so far. Please turn the [ros.rviz.message_notifier] rosconsole logger to DEBUG for more information.

error 2 (in rviz): Camerainfo

No camerainfo recieved on camera/depth/camera_info]. Topic may not exist.

Error 3 Sometimes I get this error in dashboard:

Camera Info for rgb stream has subscribers, but stream has stopped.

Any ideas?

Apparently I messed around with rviz settings too much. After I set fixed_frame to /base_link and target Frame to <fixed frame=""> in .Global Options, everything worked as expected. You can set the options in the rviz window or in .rviz/config and .rviz/display_config.

This looks like a message version mismatch between the computer running rviz and the turtlebot. Are you running the same version of ROS on both?

Thanks for the suggestion! But I am running electric on ubuntu 11.10 on both master and slave.

This could also be a problem with your choice of coordinate frames in rviz. If your fixed or target frame isn't valid, rviz will fail to find a transform from the the camera frame to your target frame, so it displays nothing. Try choosing a different frames.
