You should be able to run that package with the kinect's camera topic instead of the gscam topic; it should be as simple as changing the topic remapping arguments.

The README does a very thorough job of describing how to download and run the node; the only thing you should have to do is change the topic remapping arguments

Hi, You can always use the Kinect camera to perform the recognition using the face_recognition package. The package is based on image input and does not use the depth data. If you want to use depth data in your recognition system then you have to work with something else.

Here is how you can do that - The node is subscribing to topic - /camera/image_raw Kinect is publishing on topic - /camera/rgb/image_color

Create a launch file to remap the topic and you are all set. Ex - <remap from="/camera/image_raw" to="/camera/rgb/image_color"/>
