Point Grey Camera Driver Issue

I'm trying to use my point grey camera "Firefly MV" working with ros

Running Ubuntu 16.04 on Nvedia TX1

Camera works fine using the pointgrey software (binaries) on this machine.

Launched the cmd: roslaunch pointgrey_camera_driver camera.launch

[camera/image_proc_debayer-3] process has died [pid 23867, exit code 255, cmd /home/ubuntu/drive/catkin_ws/devel/lib/nodelet/nodelet load image_proc/debayer camera_nodelet_manager __name:=image_proc_debayer __log:=/home/ubuntu/.ros/log/cf5bdaaa-1051-11e7-b5d5-00044b6696c8/camera-image_proc_debayer-3.log]. log file: /home/ubuntu/.ros/log/cf5bdaaa-1051-11e7-b5d5-00044b6696c8/camera-image_proc_debayer-3*.log

I'm thinking it's something to do w/ image_proc, So i've cloned the image pipeline git into catkin_ws/src and ran catkin make but the problem persists.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

What does it give you when you launch this: rosrun pointgrey_camera_driver list_cameras

It listed the camera properly.

Hey guys I solved my own question - I ended up finding the binary for image pipeline.

sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-image-pipeline

How did you solve the issue? I have the same issue that I have been trying to solve for a few days now.

$rosrun pointgrey_camera_driver list_cameras Number of cameras found: 1 [0]Serial: 16493053, Model: Chameleon3 CM3-U3-50S5C, Vendor: Point Grey Research, Sensor: Sony IMX264 (2/3" Color CMOS)

sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-image-pipeline

That's all - I just didn't know there was a binary.

So the driver works well in TX1 now?
