I was looking for a package which works with ROS indigo and have the ability to detect objects position using Kinect and point cloud of the scene. I searched the ROS wiki but All the packages are either old or not working. If anyone worked with one of these packages and could make them work please help with finding a good package.

PCL ( ) with pcl_ros can do this. You can subscribe to the PointCloud2 messages from the kinect as pcl::PointCloud<> and pcl_ros will handle conversion for you. Then you can basically follow the tutorials on the PCL website.

that's true, using point cloud will simplify your destination. I'm using hydro and pcl works well.
