Kinect ( on turtlebot) not returning depth image

I was trying to callibrate the iRobot Create that I have but it gave me the error "Please point me at a wall" repeatedly.

So I tried to check if my Kinect is working or not.

When I enter the following command, after running openni_launch

rosrun image_view disparity_view image:=/camera/depthegistered/disparity

I don't get any output in the screen that pops up. And I get the following messages in the commandline,

If I just run the gmapping_demo, there is no boundary being generated when I point the robot to a wall.

I tried it again after that and the Kinect did return me the depth image. But still I don't get anything from the gmapping demo. What should I do next?

Turtlebot gmapping demo not generating map, any help?

I am using the turtlebot packages for groovy on an iRobot Create.

If I just run the gmapping_demo, there is no boundary being generated when I point the robot to a wall. Just in case, I save this "map" and attempt to navigate it autonomously. When I run the amcl.demo with this map and try to set a navigation goal, I get the following -

[ WARN] [1386874801.296779658]: Unable to get starting pose of robot, unable to create global plan
[ERROR] [1386874801.296936591]: Aborting because a valid plan could not be found. Even after executing all recovery behaviors
[ERROR] [1386874801.382994043]: Extrapolation Error looking up robot pose: Unable to lookup transform, cache is empty, when looking up transform from frame [/base_footprint] to frame [/map]

[ WARN] [1386874801.983458460]: Could not get robot pose, cancelling reconfiguration
[ERROR] [1386874802.383747282]: Extrapolation Error looking up robot pose: Unable to lookup transform, cache is empty, when looking up transform from frame [/base_footprint] to frame [/map]

So, I then tried to callibrate the iRobot Create that I have but it gave me the error "Please point me at a wall" repeatedly.

So I tried to check if my Kinect is working or not.

When I enter the following command, after running openni_launch

rosrun image_view disparity_view image:=/camera/depthegistered/disparity

I don't get any output in the screen that pops up. And I get the following messages in the commandline,
