I have force reinstalled openni_launch and avin2 on my kinetic operating system, and it successfully launches and detects the kinect without errors. I even successfully installed and built rgbd_launch using cmake. However, every time I try to visualize the output in rviz or image_view, nothing happens. I have no idea why this is occurring, and no error messages are being displayed to provide a starting point. The only clue I have is that when I ran the "make" command in the rgbd_launch directory (after cmake), nothing happened. Any help would be appreciated.

Before checking visualizers as RViz, image_view , make sure ROS topics you expect those visualizers to visualize. Unfortunately in the doc of the packages you mentioned published topics are not clearly mentioned. You can refer to instead.
