I use ubuntu 12.04 with fuerte.

I followed rgbdslam.

When I run rgbdslam,it shows the error:

  sam@sam:/media/Data/code/ros/slam/rgbdslam$ roslaunch rgbdslam kinect+rgbdslam.launch 
  ... logging to /home/sam/.ros/log/07543c9e-f807-11e1-8779-20cf30a23845/roslaunch-sam-21581.log
  Checking log directory for disk usage. This may take awhile.
  Press Ctrl-C to interrupt
  Done checking log file disk usage. Usage is <1GB.

  while processing /opt/ros/fuerte/stacks/openni_camera/launch/openni_node.launch:
  Invalid roslaunch XML syntax: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: u'/opt/ros/fuerte/stacks/openni_camera/launch/openni_node.launch'

How to solve it?

Thank you~

I get rgbdslam to work as follows

roslaunch openni_launch openni.launch
rosrun rgbdslam rgbdslam

The topics that are necessary for rgbdslam node are published by openni.launch file. Just don't use kinect+rgbdslam. This has been working for me

The openni drivers have changed in fuerte, and the kinect+rgbdslam.launch launch file is looking for the electric openni_camera launch file. You can fix this by changing the kinect+rgbdslam.launch file as such:


<include file="$(find openni_camera)/launch/openni_node.launch"/>


<include file="$(find openni_launch)/launch/openni.launch"/>

Tip: Make sure you have installed openni_launch, as it is no longer included in the openni_camera package.

  1. Does the file or directory exist? Is openni_camera installed?
  2. As you use fuerte, the launch file might just not be written for fuerte, thus you need to adapt it. (Basically start the kinect with its launch file).
