I am currently in the process of skeleton tracking using the instructions from this link

When I try to run the command roslaunch skeleton_markers markers_from_tf.launch, I get the following error below

ERROR: cannot launch node of type [openni_tracker/openni_tracker]: can't locate node [openni_tracker] in package [openni_tracker]

The command keeps running after the error and when I try to finish the instructions the skeleton tracking does not work. If anybody knows how I can fix this problem any help would be appreciated.

The tutorial you link is very old, and refers to ROS Electric. That is 6 releases ago. It is very well possible that the packages don't exist or work anymore on recent versions of ROS. Can you tell us how you installed and setup everything?

I installed the openni tracker library by using git clone . When I wanted to run it I changed to my catkin_ws(workspace) then I used the command source devel/setup.bash then I used the commands from the link I posted. @gvdhoorn

That could then potentially work. Can you make sure there is a openni_tracker binary under devel/lib?
