Hi all librealsense gurus,

I've been trying to get librealsense working on my x86 machine again -- we have had it going in the past. I've completed a clean re-install of ubuntu 16.04 LTS yesterday. The kernel is 4.4, as per the default from the installation of the latest version of that distro.

I have been following through the steps on : ...the first step of which is to follow through this: installing realsense sdk from a deb package

This seems to procede without complaint until I try to run


Which tells me it can't handle the pixel format from the depth stream. When I test the uvc module, it shows that the uvcvideo driver has not been patched to allow the realsense camera to be used:

modinfo uvcvideo | grep "version:"

What do I have to do to get this to happen?

I believe the Intel realsense team prefers support requests to be posted to their issue tracker. At the very least that should increase the visibility of your question, as the ROS realsense community is rather centered around that tracker I believe.
