I would suggest you to install ROS first and to take a look at ROS beginner tutorials to have an idea how ROS generally works.

Finishing the beginner tutorials shouldn't take you more than one day of your time. Once you have some basic understanding of ROS, check this tutorial : `

it explains how to use roboearth with a kinect for object recognition. But first you should also install those ROS packages/stacks

OpenNI : Necessary accessing the data recorded by your Kinect

RoboEarth Contains useful packages for accessing RoboEarth functionalities

Steps needed to install those packages are explained each package's page. This might be a slow solution that could take few days of your time but I think that the time invested in learning ROS basics is definitely worth it.
