Thank you for your reply.

I resolve the problem by executing the following command.

mkdir -p ~/tmp
cd ~/tmp
chmod u+x
sudo ./ # accept agreement

After that I can access the path /opt/softkinetic/DepthSenseSDK.

I deleted that file which I just put to share for a project - I don't think the creator would be happy with my hosting it. But there are versions of the SDK floating around online still.

I would report this over at the issue tracker of that repository.

But in general: just cloning a repository is not enough. You'll have to make sure to have installed all dependencies. In the case of the SoftKinetic cameras, that means installing the DepthSense SDK.
