I wanted to set up the kinect with ROS. I am running ROS-electric. I installed openni_kinect using sudo apt-get install ros-electric-openni-kinect. I then ran roslaunch openni_launch openni.launch to see if it would launch. Now when I run this command it returns with the everything shown below.

I've solved the issue! There were two errors to solve here:

  1. First of all the kinect camera driver had not been set up correctly so the package had to be re-built and that fixed that issue. I'm not sure why it didn't build the first time to be sure.

  2. My ROS workspace had a conflict within it with the image_proc folder in openni. This I believe had been created while trying to create an opencv overlay.

Thank you very much for all the help.

I think there are multiple problems here. All the errors that say "[rospack] opendir error [No such file or directory] while crawling..." indicate that there's something wrong with your ROS_PACKAGE_PATH. Check to make sure that you actually want /home/aksat/aksat to be on your ROS_PACKAGE_PATH (based on what you posted, I'm not sure why it is), that actually exists, and that you have the correct permissions.

As for the kinect, the first things I'd check are that, if it's an actual kinect (as opposed to an asus xtion), that the AC adaptor is plugged in, and that you're not plugging it into USB 3 ports (the kinect only works with USB 2).

For debugging purposes, it would also help if you could post the output to lsusb.

ok so I solved the ROS_PACKAGE_PATH problem now. It seems I'd made a typo in one of the files I'd sourced in bashrc. Yes the kinect is definitely an actual kinect and the USB ports are 2.0. Finally the lsusb output is

Does "roslaunch openni_camera openni_node.launch" work? You should be able to visualize the Kinect data in rviz.

Thanks for cleaning up my post. I've tried roslaunch openni_camera openni_node.launch and it returns [/openni_node1] No devices connected.... waiting for devices to be connected. In rviz I tried setting up a point cloud but this shows that no topics are being published.

Topic list after opening rviz gives: /goal /initialpose /rosout /rosout_agg /tf

ok so i tried reinstalling openni_kinect from source and it detected the kinect. But then in rviz it tells me that nothing is being published on the depth/points topic. I went and tried to re-launch openni_node.launch and now it doesnt even connect but it doesnt tell me its not connecting either!

The errors in red still appear however and lsusb still gives me what appeared before.

Yes the kinect is definitely an actual kinect and the USB ports are 2.0.

Finally the lsusb output is
