Never used turbo-ros-pkg until you mentioned it. Just FYI I tried it out on 14.04+Indigo and it did exactly what you want. So if you can get to the bottom of the segfault, you're on your way to getting what you need.

Not sure how you are getting a segfault on Kinetic. I tried and was unable to compile turbo-ros-pkg. A bit of digging revealed this commit to PCL from 2013...

That commit introduced a bug that was fixed in PR #911 in 2014. My PCL on Indigo is pre 2013 commit and the PCL on Kinetic is post 2013 commit, but pre-2014 PR.... So the TL;DR is: right now turbo works on Indigo but not Kinetic

If you wanted to fix, you could edit turbo package to not rely on PCL installed from apt-get by re-writing the few functions that depend on PCL, compile PCL from source, or figure out a different way to get a slightly newer version of PCL installed from binaries.

@jarvisschultz@zjzjg1280 How did you guys try running the turbo-ros-pkg. After doing catkin_make install(which worked with no errors), an object file is created in the devel/lib folder. But how do I exactly use the plugin to publish the selected points?

I ran a Kinect so that I was publishing a point cloud, and then I followed the instructions on the turbo_ros_pkg readme to add a tool to rviz. If memory serves correctly, the UI was a bit wonky, but it did work.
