I'm using a Pandaboard which runs Ubuntu 12.04 and I try to use openni_launch. Therefore I need to install the OpenNI drivers. I used the tutorial "Kinect Installation on BeagleBoard-xM and PandaBoard running Ubuntu 12.04" which is pretty good and helped me (and probably a lot more developers) to save some time. Unfortunately, I'm using an Asus xtion (because of the lag of enough usb ports and the fact of less energy consumption). The compiling seems to work well but when I'm trying to run the tutorials I get the following failure msgs: "Open failed: Failed to open the USB device!" By executing the samples as sudo I get following output: "Open failed: Device Protocol: Bad Parameter sent!"

I know that this is probably the wrong forum to ask this question but I know that the robotic community (especially the Raspberry pi owner) are interested to solve this error.

Would be great get your thoughts about this issue. Best regards

For kinect use, i needed to add a udev rule... perhaps you have to this too.
