Hello,

I have installed pointgrey_camera_driver following the tutorial in 3 computers: - Laptop with Ubuntu 14.04 and ROS Indigo - Desktop computer with Ubuntu 16.04 and ROS Kinetic - 2nd Desktop computer with Ubuntu 16.04 and ROS Kinetic

With Ubuntu 14 and ROS Indigo it works perfectly and, running the following commands, I can display the images from the cameras via the topic /camera/image_raw:

first terminal:

roslaunch pointgrey_camera_driver camera.launch

second terminal:

rosrun image_view image_view image:=/camera/image_raw

However when I try to do the same it in Ubuntu 16 and ROS kinetic, I have this error message:

[ERROR] [1509067241.167606446]: Failed to start with error: PointGreyCamera::start Failed to start capture | FlyCapture2::ErrorType 33 Error starting isochronous stream.

I have check and updated the value of usbfs_memory_mb in the 3 computers and the values are the same. Also I can run FlyCap2 and display the images from the cameras in the 3 computers. Any thoughts about why?

Thanks in advance.

Just to make sure: this is a local problem for all three computers, correct? You're not trying to pub-sub the image stream across the network (yet)?

You are right, gvdhoorn, this is a local problem but only in both computer with Ubuntu 16 and ROS Kinetic. The computer with Ubuntu 14 and ROS Indigo can use the fireflyMV camera without any issue.
