I am new to ROS and I finally managed to run rgbdslam on my Ubuntu 10.04.

Now the problem is that though I can save node-wide pcd files, but I CANNOT save the whole scene to pcd file. Every time after I clicked save or save as, nothing happened in the destination folder.

Did I miss something? Could anyone help me with the problem?

Finally I used cloud_to_pcd to subscribe the topic /rgbdslam/batch_cloud and save the scene into pcd.

Hi, this is indeed confusing.

Rgbdslam saves the cloud into a file called quicksave.pcd and stores it into its current working directory (cwd). The cwd depends on the way you started it. You can find the cwd by executing lsof|grep rgbdslam|grep cwd in a terminal while rgbdslam is running.

Thanks. But still I cannot save .pcd file. I've found the cwd /rgbdslam/bin, but no quicksave.pcd is in it. Save as doesn't work either. So I wonder why node-wide save works, but save or save as doesn't, it's werid, isn't it?

yes indeed. I'll have a look into it. A new version will be released in a few days anyway, so try updating next week.
