Softkinetic node StreamingException with senz3D

I try to use a Creative Senz3D with the softkinetic node from . I have installed the DepthSense SDK and I can view the image stream with the sample program from the SDK. But I get a "DepthSense::StreamingException" when I start the softkinetic node. I get this error with every color_frame_format setting. If I disable the color image in the config the nodes starts without error. So it has something to do with the color image stream. I use ros indigo on a system with ubuntu 14.04.2 and tried USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports.

Here is the console output from softkinetic_camera_ds325.launch:

Sometimes it's a permission problem. Or a lib problem.

Here the same Streaming Exeption is given:

I've solved it by checking this:

(From the link)

I export the DepthSense Library with "export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/softkinetic/DepthSenseSDK/lib/", with "echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH" I get this line:


All seem ok!

Then you should look into your /opt/softkinetic/DepthSenseSDK/lib folder

Mine looks like this:    

The "" file links to the "", same thing with the libDepthSense files.

I remember that i had to create that one myself to fix an issue. Can't seem to find the documentation where that solution is found. But credits go to him :-p

To create the links

ln -s /opt/softkinetic/DepthSenseSDK/lib/ /opt/softkinetic/DepthSenseSDK/lib/
ln -s /opt/softkinetic/DepthSenseSDK/lib/ /opt/softkinetic/DepthSenseSDK/lib/
