Installed Ubuntu 12 and Fuerte first and couldn't get the Kinect camera to show up. Reinstalled Ubuntu 11.10 and Electric and stepped line by line through installation guide and installed it by using sudo apt-get install ros-electric-openni-kinect.

When I tried to 'rosrun openni_launch openni.launch' I got permission errors from usblib (can't remember the exact error). Found the 55-primesense-usb.rules file and the permissions looked ok.

Tried to then install all the OpenNI drivers directly from the website and now when I run 'rosrun openni...' I get this error. After running through all those steps when I run the example I get this. /x86-Release$ sudo ./Sample-Players 503 INFO New log started on 2012-06-11 19:15:24 636 INFO OpenNI version is 1.5.2 (Build 23)-Linux-x86 (Dec 28 2011 17:53:48) 680 INFO --- Filter Info --- Minimum Severity: UNKNOWN One or more of the following nodes could not be enumerated:

I'm doing everything by the book and nothing is working. Any suggestions? I've been trying for 4 hours to get this camera working and am at my wits end.

I tried your suggestion of running rosrun openni_launch openni.launch and this is what happens.

If I run lsusb the camera, motor and audio are showing up and like I said all OpenNI drivers have been installed (NITE, OpenNI, etc.).

hope you are doing roslaunch than rosrun in the above cases. I assume they are typos here.
