Hi, guys, I am new to use kinect as well as ubuntu and ros. As there is no registered data from OpenNI (shown in ), I try freenect to read kinect following and . It can be installed successfully, but when roslaunch, there are several warnings. I know the warning of calibrated file is due to no calibration. But what about the "compatible depth output mode"? It also says [ INFO] [1396313592.698301755]: Stopping device RGB and Depth stream flush. I have no idea on it. My system is ubuntu 12.10 and ROS hydro. The result of roslaunch freenect_launch freenect.launch is listed below.

The question above cannot show all the result. The last sentence is [ INFO] [1396315873.822080213]: Stopping device RGB and Depth stream flush.

What's the problem there ? Are all th topic published at the end ? I used openni2 usually and after the launch the camera send info only if I request it so... Did you try an image_view on a image topic to see if it's working ? I wan't see any problem there

@pinocchio please use the code-formatting feature of the editor so your output is readable.

@demmeln thank you. I would like to use code formate, but I do not know how to use it. @Maya You see in the last line of the result, it says "[ INFO] [1396313592.698301755]: Stopping device RGB and Depth stream flush." I can show the image though.

@pinocchio: In the editor, select the text you want to format as code or output and then hit the button with the 0 and 1 in the edit bar. It indents all your text by 4 spaces, which is the formatting rule for code blocks in markdown.

@pinocchio: why do you think the last info line is a problem?

@demmeln Hi, I am not sure, but when I use openni.launch, there is no this line. Could you please tell me what does it mean? Also, do you know this warning, [ WARN] [1396313589.934913658]: Could not find any compatible depth output mode for 1. Falling back to default depth output mode 1.?

I have no clue what it means, but since it is a different driver, it is not surprising to have different output. It is an INFO and not a warning after all. If it publishes images, it seems to work. Maybe someone else knows more, or have a look in the code to find out what it means.
