On V-Rep simulator, laser range finder (Hokuyo) passes the data in sensor_msgs/PointCloud2 format. I want to convert this data to sensor_msgs/LaserScan.

I could only find Openni-based "pointcloud_to_laserscan". Is there an easy way to transform generic pointcloud2 to laserscan?

Thank you!

The one you found might work for you. Have you tried it?

Not actually, but luckily one of my colleagues encountered the same problem and wrote such a node.
