Hi, I'm trying to follow the tutorial openni_launch for calibrating the Kinect, but when I launch the dynamic_reconfigure node and check the depth registration box it stops to publish images. When I uncheck the depth registration box it starts to publish again. Any idea to fix this? Are there some problem with the kinect driver? Thanks

Same problem here. Is this a common bug because I see several people experiencing the same problem

Are there any update for the node available in the ros community to fix this problem?

I don't know why but when I installed openni_launch stack from ubuntu repos using the command below,

sudo apt-get install ros-fuerte-openni-launch ros-fuerte-openni-camera

the result is the same. Hovewer, when I tried to download the stacks from the kforge, it works. (This might be a bug in the ros-fuerte-openni-launch package, I am not sure.)

I recommend you to remove packages ros-fuerte-openni-camera and ros-fuerte-openni-launch using

sudo apt-get remove ros-fuerte-openni-launch ros-fuerte-openni-camera

and download them back using

hg clone
hg clone

These stacks are working for me.

I had the same problem, I was trying to visualize the point cloud on rviz, everything works perfectly with the depth unregistered, but, as it happens to you, as soon as I check the depth registration box it stops to work. I tried also to use the package downloaded with hg clone, but I have the same problem. This is probably a bug in the dynamic reconfigure GUI, my temporarily solution for now is to not use this GUI.
