I want to build my project in catkin workspace. After executing catkin_make i got this error:

     add_subdirectory(openni_tracker)

-- Checking for module 'libopenni'
--   Found libopenni, version 1.5.4.0

  "kinect_DIR" to a directory containing one of the above files.  If "kinect"

catkin workspace is at : ~/catkin_ws whereas i have installed opeNI package over ~/kinect folder. Its my first ROS program so any advice would be helpful.

Adding your CMakeLists.txt and package.xml to your original question (minus boilerplate comments) would make this much easier to debug. That said, the error is almost certainly because you are trying to find_package a CMake package called kinect...

... but that doesn't work because there is no Findkinect.cmake or kinectConfig.cmake file available. Is kinect supposed to be a ROS package?
