Hi! I'm using Kinect Xbox 360 and working on NVIDIA Jetson TX2. I installed the ROS from here: I can use RTABMAP normal version but can't launch the rtabmap_ros. I tried to everything for launch but it still does'nt work. My ros directory:

Here is the error: /opt/ros/kinetic

[freenect.launch] is neither a launch file in package [freenect_launch] nor is [freenect_launch] a launch file name
The traceback for the exception was written to the log file

Hello, thanks for helping everyone. I solved the problem with these steps:

roslaunch freenect_launch freenect.launch depth_registration:=yes
roslaunch rtabmap_ros rtabmap.launch rtabmap_args:="--delete_db_on_start"

I think this problem is because of double freenect version. I got freenect that I installed manualy, another freenect version came from ROS. Therefore, rtabmap cant launch.

Try rqt_image_view tool. You can also add a Camera display in RVIZ to see images streamed.
