Orbbec Astra on ROS

Hi, I would like to know if anyone was able to run OpenNI2 ROS Package with Orbbec Astra camera.

I tried but the device is not recognized.

See the solution that I wrote here:

Hi, Thanks for the reply.

I tried exactly as you wrote. But it still does no recognise the device. How your pkgconfig “.pc” file looks like?


Name: OpenNI2
Description: A general purpose driver for all OpenNI cameras.
Cflags: -I${includedir}
Libs: -L${libdir} -lOpenNI2 -L${libdir}/OpenNI2/Drivers -lDummyDevice -lOniFile -lPS1080 -lORBBEC.so

$ sudo adduser [user_name] video
