I connected Kinect on Ubuntu on my virtual machine, launched openni.launch and then opened rviz. On Rviz I added pointcloud2 and topic to camera/depth/points. I also changed fixed frame to camera_link. But still I am not able to get anything on Rviz. On the other hand, if I connect Kinect to Odroid-XU4, launch openni.launch on Odroid and run Rviz on my virtual machine by receiving data from Odroid through network connection, I can easily get the depth points on Rviz display. Can someone tell me what could be the problem in my virtual machine?
