I am using ros indigo and kinect xbox.
When i run the "rosrun openni_tracker openni_tracker", i was getting error InitFromXml failed: Can't create any node of the requested type!
I followed the suggestion provided from this link1 and link2

Here is the sequence of commands that i followed. I have installed sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-freenect-stack and NITE-Bin-Dev-Linux-x64-v1.5.2.23

roslaunch freenect_launch freenect.launch &
roslaunch pr2_LookAround_pkg face_detector.rgbd.launch &
rosrun rviz rviz

I tried by adding license sudo niLicense -l 0KOIk2JeIBYClPWVnMoRKn5cdY4= , but no luck.

you can try this:sudo apt-get install libopenni-dev libopenni-sensor-primesense-dev. if it do not work : $dpkg -l|grep openni
$rosdep install –from-path -s –reinstall
$env|grep ros

Do not forget to try the other usb port !
