HI all,

I have found a bunch of other similar problems to this but nothing that helps. I recently installed Kinetic from source on my pi3/raspbian Jessie using the install guide on ros wiki. However I am unable to get freenect.launch or openni.launch to work with my 360 kinect. Before upgrading to kinetic, I was running Indigo - if I switch back to indigo then openni launches all the camera nodes and everything works fine. So it must be something to do with my ROS config.

This is the crazy path I followed to get my install to where it is today:

EDIT: Updated to show missing wstool and rosdep install commands

When I roslaunch freenect_launch freenect.launch I get this:

I don't know how we feel about pastebin here, but there is going to be a lot of dumps in this question so I figure it is neater ..

When I roslaunch openni_launch openni.launch, I get this:

Let me know if the log files mentioned in those dumps are helpful and I can post them too.

The only kind of similar question that I could find to this problem suggested that maybe ... (more)

I've recently changed over from Rasbian to Ubuntu Mate which allows for native installation of ROS packages rather than compilation from source. I found everything worked as expected with much shorter compile times. Not a direct solution to your problem but maybe worth considering
