I have a Kinect device, ROS Electric, and I installed the openni package with the ubuntu package ros-electric-openni-kinect. When I execute the launch file openni_camera/openni_node.launch, I get the following error:

[ INFO] [1329197063.574824949]: [/kinect/openni_node1] Number devices connected: 1

  what():  /tmp/buildd/libopencv-2.3.1+svn6514+branch23/modules/core/src/array.cpp:162: error: (-13)  in function cvInitMatHeader

Do you know what would cause this error?

Please let me know if you need some more information on the issue. Thank you.
