I'm guessing that the environment for the left terminal is not set correctly? Have you sourced your workspaces setup.bash file? Do you have openni_launch installed?

Please don't provide answers unless they are actually answers. If you'd like to add more information, edit your original question. To be clear, you must "source" your workspace in every terminal. A useful thing to add to your question would be the output of env |grep ROS in the left terminal.

If you are using indigo the command sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-openni-launch would install the openni_launch package.
