I'm using the ROS Fuerte version and also the Ubuntu 12.04 I did the same thing like the guy who posted at []. I have done the ROS Fuerte Installed

based on the website link text

  1. sudo apt-get install ros-fuerte-openni-kinect

  2. hg clone

  3. cd drivers

  4. BUT, when I type "make", it shows like this below :

make[3]: * [../../../Bin/x86-Release/org.OpenNI.jar] Error 127 make[2]: [Wrappers/] Error 2 make[2]: Waiting for unfinished jobs.... failed to execute: make -j8 -C /home/n7256795/drivers/openni/build/openni/Platform/Linux/CreateRedist/../Build > /home/n7256795/drivers/openni/build/openni/Platform/Linux/CreateRedist/Output/BuildOpenNI.txt Building Failed! make[1]: [installed] Error 1 make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/n7256795/drivers/openni' make: ** [openni_lib] Error 2

Really need help and I do really appreciate if anyone can solve this problem.

Same problem. ROS says: New in Fuerte: each camera driver formerly included here now resides in its own separate stack. For backwards compatibility, those stacks are listed as camera_drivers dependencies, but external dependencies should refer directly to the desired driver stack.

So where is this driver ?

Hi, I am having a similar problem - but it seams like the kinect openni drivers etc are already in the kinect package and that manually installing the drivers like you mention is over doing it - but how to get it running I dont know..
