I'm using Linux Mint 12 x64 (based on Ubuntu Oneiric) and ROS electric.

I installed the openni_kinect stack using the instructions here: http://www.ros.org/wiki/openni_kinect

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

hg clone https://kforge.ros.org/openni/drivers openni-drivers
cd openni-drivers
make
sudo make install
cd ..
hg clone https://kforge.ros.org/openni/openni_ros 
rosmake openni_kinect --rosdep-install
sudo usermod -a -G video jaustin

I then restarted, made sure the Kinect had external power (got a blinking green light), saw the following from lsusb:

Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

But when I try to start up the openni_camera stack, it does not detect the device:

$ roslaunch openni_camera openni_node.launch
... logging to /home/jaustin/.ros/log/b8a3ebd8-7a9f-11e1-8f79-0090f5c64449/roslaunch-italy-18810.log

I know there is a related question here. That question was answered, but it's from a while ago, and the answer (basically, "I re-installed ubuntu and it just worked") is not very satisfactory. So I thought it couldn't hurt to bring it up again.

Does anyone have any ideas on things ... (more)

Figured it out.

I bought a "Kinect for Windows" instead of XBOX 360 Kinect Sensor. Apparently this new version, while it has better hardware, is not yet supported by openni

Is it supported yet? Have you tried libfreenect?

I get this error when I install Groovy on Ubuntu 12.10 and do the following:

1) Go to "www.openni.org/openni-sdk/openni-sdk-history-2" and download NiTE v1.5.2.21 for Linux-x64 2) Unzip it and go inside the top-level directory 3) Type: sudo ./install.sh

Before I do these 3 lines above, "roslaunch openni_launch openni.launch" works fine but after I do them I get:

No devices connected.... waiting for devices to be connected

Can you try it out with:

$ roslaunch openni_launch openni.launch

$ rosrun image_view image_view image:=/camera/rgb/image_color

and not with

$ roslaunch openni_camera openni_node.launch

and tell me which output you get.

BTW: Are you using the "Kinect for Winows"?

This might be the same issue as this one: http://answers.ros.org/question/147/kinect-and-usb-30

I also had problems with the kinect and the solution was to plug it into a 2.0 slot.
