Hi Can kinect camera be connected to ubuntu 32-bit for RGBDSLAM package? I'm using ubuntu 11.10 32-bit os. Its dual boot along with windows7 64-bit. I installed with 32-bit ubuntu cd accidently and working on it. I wanted to confirm before buying kinect, can i use the openni driver for kinect and perform rgbdslam or should i change to 64-bit ubuntu 11.10?

Yes, Kinect works perfectly with rgbdslam. I tested it with ROS Electric from binary package. Ubuntu 11.04 and 11.10, 32-bit.

If I remember correctly it is possible to save the pcd directly from the RGBDSLAM GUI. Otherwise the processed clouds are available on the following topic: /rgbdslam/batch_clouds which you can save as follows:

rosrun pcl_ros pointcloud_to_pcd /input:=/rgbdslam/batch_clouds

This should be asked as a new question instead of posted as an answer, since it is not attempting to answer this question. Thanks for helping to keep ROS Answers organized!
