Hello all, I am currently running on ROS Kinetic on Ubuntu and would like to know how am i supposed to display the raw data captured from my Soft Kinetic DS 325 camera to a pointcloud on rviz? Currently I am not able to view any topics when i open rviz. Help would be very much appreciated. Thank you!

Currently i have 4 terminals running (Images are attached below): 1)roscore 2) the depthsense viewer software downloaded from their website 3) the terminal in which i am trying to run a launch file i cloned off github , with the error 4) rviz ( the screenshot with what i view in rviz is also attached below)

Are you running the node that runs the Kinect?

Hi, I'm not using a Kinect but a depth sense camera so I believe the node is known as " softkinetic_camera" . I've tried running it but it just gives me an error of not being able to launch type of node.

Please update your question with a copy and paste of how you are running it and the error.

Hi, i wanted to upload a screenshot of how i am running it but apparently i am not able to do so as i have less than (5 points?). So I have just updated the question with the terminals that i am running with. Should you require any screenshots that could be of help i could email you !

from the rviz screenshot, i could say that you have to add pointcloud topic to view it, can you share "rqt_graph" screenshot.

hello! i have updated with the screenshots from both rviz and the rqt graph. currently, what i am trying to achieve is for my camera to view the yellow tape as a point cloud in rviz. and i would like to ask, how to link the base camera link with my map in rviz?

What adjustments did you make? Can you please include them? Otherwise, this isn't an answer.
