Nope, I tested it on Ubuntu 12.04 with openni2 2.2.0.33 (https://launchpad.net/~eighthave/+archive/openni) also I recompiled the openni2_* packages. and It worked.

unless you install libFreenectDriver, which is a libfreenect-based driver for OpenNI2 https://github.com/OpenKinect/libfreenect/tree/master/OpenNI2-FreenectDriver

A quite dumb way to resolve the problem.

# Prepare the catkin workspace for the libfreenect
source /opt/ros/hydro/setup.bash
mkdir -p ~/libfreenect_catkin_ws/src
cd ~/libfreenect_catkin_ws/src
catkin_init_workspace
cd ~/libfreenect_catkin_ws/
catkin_make
source devel/setup.bash

# Get the latest sources from the github repository
cd ~/libfreenect_catkin_ws/src/ 
git clone https://github.com/OpenKinect/libfreenect.git

# Grab the source of the freenect_stack
git clone https://github.com/ros-drivers/freenect_stack.git tmp
mv tmp/freenect_stack .
mv tmp/freenect_camera .
mv tmp/freenect_launch .
rm -rf tmp/

# catkinize the "vanilla" libfreenect sources
cd ~/libfreenect_catkin_ws/src/libfreenect/
wget -q https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ros-drivers-gbp/libfreenect-release/master/patches/package.xml

replace :{version} in package.xml file with the 0.4.3 or the up-to-date version to the moment of accessing this page.

Original File

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<package>
  <name>libfreenect</name>
  <version>:{version}</version>

Updated file

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<package>
  <name>libfreenect</name>
  <version>0.4.3</version>

After that install the required packages using rosdep

# Installing package dependencies
rosdep update
rosdep install libfreenect
sudo aptitude install ros-hydro-camera-info-manager ros-hydro-diagnostic-msgs ros-hydro-diagnostic-updater ros-hydro-dynamic-reconfigure

Now you can build the packages using catkin_make_isolated

# use sudo if needed
catkin_make_isolated
# change hydro if you are using different distribution
catkin_make_isolated --install --install-space=/opt/ros/hydro/
