Re: [Ros-kinect] kinect_pcl

Dejan Pangercic
Hi all,

I am experiencing a very weird behavior or doing something completely wrong.
I run roslaunch kinect_nodelets.launch in terminal 1 and the kinect
nodelet driver seems to work just fine.
However, when I launch an attached file (taken from kinect_pcl/launch/
directory) in another terminal the nodelet driver all of suddenly
stops sending all data. So no point clouds, no images, no imu data.
Anyone with an idea what might have gone south?

I am on:

cheers, d.
