I want to calibrate an Asus Xtion Pro with camera_calibration on Indigo in Ubuntu 14.04. However when I want to calibrate them using camera_calibration by typing:

ricardo@ricardo-desarrollo:~$ rosrun camera_calibration image:=/camera/ir/image_raw camera:=/camera/ir --size 7x4 --square 0.0408

I get the following output:

('Waiting for service', '/camera/ir/set_camera_info', '...')

At this point it stays eternally. With rgb camera works fine.

Does it change something when you add --no-service-check ?

rostopic echo /camera/ir/image_raw does show something?

I get the following:

WARNING: topic [/camera/ir/image_raw] does not appear to be published yet

Try camera/ir/image instead of camera/ir/image_raw. This should work for the Asus Xtion.

did you run roslaunch openni_launch openni.launch or whatever program you use to get your Kinect images to ROS?

Waiting for service doesn't appear but doesn't work, nothing happens.

you have to wait for a bit. you need to cover the projector with a note as well. Theres 1 thing though, the default parameter from factory is pretty good. When i calibrated my kinect, the parameters obtained are worse
