Hi all!

Since ROS Fuerte openni_camera and openni_launch are two different packages.

When I like to use the Camera topic in rviz, which node do I have to start?

Thanks for your help!

Right now, if you are working on fuerte you only have to roslaunch openni_launch openni.launch this will launch all the nodes related to the kinect. If everything is correct you should se the topics with a rostopic list.

/camera/rgb/camera_info /camera/rgb/image_raw ... A lot more.

You can be sure you are receiving info by typing in the terminal rostopic echo /camera/rgb/image_raw a lot of numbers will full your screen in a few secs.

Open Rviz add a display for the topic you want to display. And you should see the data if everything is correct.

the rostopic echo works, but when I add the Camera display in rviz --> Image: no image received
