I have installed ROS Hydro on Ubuntu 12.04. I want to use Kinect with ROS. I installed freenect_stack for hydro and it seems it cannot find the Kinect. It says "No devices connected... waiting for devices to be connected" when I execute "roslaunch freenect_launch freenect.launch"

Then I tried lsusb command and it doens't show any kinect devices in the list eventhough I have connected it to my computer. I would be great if someone can help me to solve this problem.

BTW, this Kinect device is working in Windows with their drivers.

Thanks in advance.
