When I try to add one of the three (Camera, Depth Cloud, Image) displays in rviz, it immediately seg faults.

gdb gives me the following output:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

I would need a backtrace from gdb (use the bt command after it crashes) to try and diagnose what is the issue. I'm not sure that image_view and rviz use exactly the same code base, so I'm dubious of the relationship, but it is possible. I'll try to reproduce on my machine.

--Also, are you using the shadow-fixed or public deb repository?-- Nvm, you are using 1.11.4, that's in public currently.

Based on your backtrace I would say that you have some problem where the image transport plugin is compiled against Qt5 but rviz is compiled against Qt4. I believe it is related to this issue:
