Hi there,

I want to launch the following file to convert pointcloud to laserscan:

<launch>

<!-- Do whatever you need to do to publish /cam3d/depth/points -->



<!-- nodelet manager -->
  <node pkg="nodelet" type="nodelet" name="nodelet_manager" output="screen" respawn="true" args="manager"/>


<!-- throttling -->
  <node pkg="nodelet" type="nodelet" name="pointcloud_throttle" args="load pointcloud_to_laserscan/CloudThrottle nodelet_manager" respawn="true">
    <param name="max_rate" value="20.0"/>
    <remap from="cloud_in" to="/cam3d/depth/points"/>
    <remap from="cloud_out" to="cloud_throttled"/>
  </node>

<!-- Fake Laser -->
  <node pkg="nodelet" type="nodelet" name="fake_laser" args="load pointcloud_to_laserscan/CloudToScan nodelet_manager" respawn="true">
    <param name="output_frame_id" value="/your_frame_id"/>
    <param name="min_height" value="-0.15"/><!-- Or any other value that suits you etter -->
    <param name="max_height" value="0.15"/><!-- Or any other value that suits you etter -->
    <remap from="cloud" to="/cloud_throttled"/>
  </node>

  <!-- Fake Laser (narrow one, for localization -->
  <node pkg="nodelet" type="nodelet" name="my_laser_narrow" args="load pointcloud_to_laserscan/CloudToScan nodelet_manager" respawn="true">
    <param name="output_frame_id" value="/your_frame_id"/>
    <param name="min_height" value="-0.025"/><!-- Or any other value that suits you etter -->
    <param name="max_height" value="0.025"/><!-- Or any other value that suits you etter -->
    <remap from="cloud" to="/cloud_throttled"/>
    <remap from="scan" to="/narrow_scan"/>
  </node>
</launch>

However, whenever I try to launch this file, I get the following error:

Checking log directory for disk usage. This may take awhile.
Press Ctrl-C to interrupt
Done checking log file disk usage. Usage is <1GB.

It turned out that the default nodelet package installation is enough. You shouldn't download nodelet from the source.
