Try using openni.launch that comes with openni_launch package.

The error says that nodelet already exist with same name. Try doing rosnode list and see whether these nodes exist without even launching kenect.launch.

I got the same problem, here is how you fix it.

 1- open up a new terminal and type `roslaunch openni_launch openni.launch`
 2- after it launches,  kill it by typing `ctrl^c`
 3- in this terminal, type `killall XnSensorServer` (it might tell you `no process is found`)
 4-in another terminal. launch the`roslaunch turtlebot_bringup kinect.launch`
 5- If it still does not work, go back to step 1 and repeat. Sometimes it takes a few times.

Hope this fixes your problem. post back with the results.

regards.

Khalid
