Hello, I tried to launch

roslaunch openni_launch openni.launch

and got this error:

process[camera/driver-3]: started with pid [21833]

Anyone knows what's wrong? Kinect is not yet connected. I have Ubuntu 12.4 OS and ROS Hydro.

Please state what software (OS and ROS) and versions you are using (use tags for that as well).

32 or 64bit? Did you install the openni packages (```sudo apt-get install ros-hydro-openni-launch```)?

Do you mean you tried to run the launch without having the Kinect plugged in? I would get all of the openni packages. Try "sudo apt-get install ros-hydro-openni*" with the star to download all Hydro openni associated packages
