I have tried to use my Astra on Ubuntu 14.04 without success.
I followed all the steps provided by JaccovdS above. But when I run NiViewer I still receive the same message:
One or more of the following nodes could not be enumerated:
Device: PrimeSense/SensorKinect/18.104.22.168: The device is not connected!
Press any key to continue . . .
What else could be wrong???
I also followed what bit-pirate proposes here, but the output is the same;
By the way, I noticed some people refer to OpenNI while others mention OpenNI2. Is there any difference to Astra?
Isn't there a complete and official guide from Orbbec on how to install Astra in Ubuntu?
I already tested the camera in Windows, and it's working fine, which tells me there is nothing wrong with the camera itself. But I need it in Ubuntu.
Thank you in advance for any help.
