Hey, sorry if I worded the question weirdly.

I have a Jetson TK1 equipped with a R200 RealSense camera. I managed to install librealsense on the Jetson, but I haven't had any luck with the ROS package. The thing is though, despite my tireless searching online, it's as though there is no longer any support for such an old machine's ROS integration with RealSense (3.10.40).

Unfortunately, the R200 is an essential part of my project, so getting rid of it (or buying something else, mind you poor college student lol) is out of the question. BUT, could I possibly use my laptop (4.10.0, pretty updated), to run the ROS package? In other words, can I SSH into the Jetson, and then somehow reroute the R200 to my laptop for data acquisition?

Thanks for all the help!!!

This is so specific to realsense support on older platforms - basically a development question - that I would suggest you post an issue on the Intel Realsense Github tracker.

Edit: is intel-ros/realsense#264 yours?

Yup that's me, but no one answered so I kept trying different methods to make it work. I think I might post in the opencv section because the error seems related to that. Thanks!
