I am using the pointcloud assembler in the laser_assembler package, unfortunately the package can only assemble pointclouds which are pointcloud1

The kinect i am using only publishes pointcloud2

Does anyone know how to convert pointCloud2 into pointcloud?

I use this

You could look at the source to see if there's any change needed for Fuerte or Groovy (probably not, since it's mostly data copying)

You can always search for the function and see if others have used it. And follow how it is done. I would suggest using the point_cloud_converter node instead if you don't really need to know the nitty gritty.
