running Asus Xtion Pro Live under ros electric fails [closed]

I did a source based installation of ros electric as described here:

The reason for that is the usage of PCL 1.6. For that I changed the .rosinstall file with the following line:

that compiles fine ros electric and the trunk of PCL (1.6).

Now I need to install the openni_kinect package with is now called openni_ros, right?

I checked out the electric version of the package that I found under:


hg clone -r 408

That compiles fine as well.

But if I want to launch the Xtion Pro Live with:

roslaunch openni_launch openni.launch

the process is dying.

Did I compile wrong versions? Or is there a better way to use ros pcl 1.6 and the Asus Xtion?

Thanks for your help

How is the process dying? Are there any errors?

I recompiled everything including the perception_pcl_unstable_electric and the above mentioned version of openni_ros (Revision 408) and than it runs. There are some warning and errors while init openni_camera (run roslaunch openni_launch openni.launch) that says the calibration files are not found.

But the output looks correct
