Anyone getting this to work, following the directions at

I get the following:

Warning: USB events thread - failed to set priority. This might cause loss of data...
Find user generator failed: Can't create any node of the requested type!

This with the unstable branch of perception_pcl on OS X.

Other openni binaries work, like NiViewer.

I have the NI binaries from PrimeSense, but maybe they need to be in a specific location? Or marked in one of my paths?

That suggests to me that you have not installed the NITE binaries and registered the plugin with OpenNI correctly. How did you install OpenNI and NITE?

Got the binaries, since I can't install from source on OS X. Think I put in the code correctly. How should I have done it?
