Hello. I tried to install Kinect 360 drivers on ROS Kinetic, but just many tutorials wrote on ROS Indigo (ubuntu 14.04) Have you experemented with Kinect 360 on ROS Kinetic? What tutorials did you use to install drivers? or I need to use ROS Indigo, because more packages from Indigo didn't transfer to Kinetic, is it?

Are there any updates on this? I am trying to do the same but I am unable to figure out how to do this exactly.

I followed the instruction given in the Kinect wiki post. I'm using ROS Kinetic (Ubuntu 16.04). Even if the post is for ROS Indigo, that worked fine for me.

Thanks to @IreshaPerera for pointers! Did you ever find a definitive 1-page guide to installing the Kinect 360 drivers on ROS Kinetic (Ubuntu 16.04). A stumbling block for me was installing OpenNI w/o openjdk-7 (I know there are ways to get it in 16.04 but they're all kind of hacky)...

Hi,

I followed this link and it worked form me on ROS Kinetic.

Here are the steps from the above link:

  1. Open terminal and do an apt-cache search of libopenni and install both the -dev and 0 libraries.

sudo apt-get install libopenni0 libopenni-dev

  1. Clone openni_camera and openni_launch from Github into your catkin_ws/src and catkin_make in the workspace folder.

cd ~/catkin_ws/src git clone https://github.com/ros-drivers/openni... git clone https://github.com/ros-drivers/openni... cd .. catkin_make catkin_make install

  1. Connect the Kinect, and run the openni_launch file

roscore roslaunch openni_launch openni.launch
