I installed openNi, NITE and PrimeSense for Kinect Sensor.

When I enter roslaunch openni_launch openni_launch

it is not funding the package.

[openni_launch] is neither a launch file in package [openni_launch] nor is [openni_launch] a launch file name
The traceback for the exception was written to the log file

I am a beginner. Guide me in this regard.


PS: I also followed #q207642. but didn't succeed

You have a typo, this is correct:

roslaunch openni_launch openni.launch

the last dot in your command was a _

I was watching the things on Rviz using

rosrun rviz rviz

I can see my images (rgb + depth). I want to see depth cloud but there is an error in my global status

Global status error: Fixed Frame [map] does not exist.

Can you help me how to fix it now.
