Hi,

when I do

rosinstall ~/openni_kinect /opt/ros/electric 'http://www.ros.org/wiki/openni_kinect?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=openni_kinect.rosinstall'

I get the following error message:

rosinstall ~/openni_kinect /opt/ros/electric 'http://www.ros.org/wiki/openni_kinect?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=openni_kinect.rosinstall'
Is not a local file, nor able to download as a URL[http://www.ros.org/wiki/openni_kinect?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=openni_kinect.rosinstall]: [Errno 104] Connection reset by peer couldn't load config uri 
http://www.ros.org/wiki/openni_kinect?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=openni_kinect.rosinstall
ERROR: Bad remote rosinstall source: 
http://www.ros.org/wiki/openni_kinect?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=openni_kinect.rosinstall  This can be caused by empty or malformed remote rosinstall 
file.

Is it the link? or the remote rosinstall file have problems ?

Daniel

The ROS wiki hasn't been super reliable over the past few days. Try again and see if it works. You could also try downloading the rosinstall file separately, and using rosinstall with the local file.

Since you already have an install from debs, you can do

sudo apt-get install ros-electric-openni-kinect

to install the openni drivers.

You can do a

 roslocate info openni_kinect > openni_kinect.install

and then use the generated file with rosinstall

 rosinstall ~/openni_kinect /opt/ros/electric openni_kinect.install
