Hi everyone,


As part of our rewrite of the Kinect/PrimeSense drivers for ROS,
we're happy to announced that there are now debian packages
available for i386/amd64 on Ubuntu Lucid and Maverick. This
means that you can now:


sudo apt-get install ros-diamondback-openni-kinect


We hope this will simplify setting up your computer with the
Kinect. The documentation for the new openni_kinect stack can be
found here:


http://www.ros.org/wiki/openni_kinect


The new stack is compatible with the old 'ni' stack. We have
renamed the stack to provide clarify for new users and also to
maintain backwards compatibility with existing installations.


As an alternative, you can download, compile and install
these libraries from the sources, which are available here:


https://kforge.ros.org/openni/openni_ros


Other sample applications in the old "ni" stack are still
available there, but will be moved to other stacks in the near
future. The "ni" stack is deprecated and we encourage developers
wishing to use the latest updates to switch to the openni_kinect
stack.


FYI: developers on non-ROS platforms can find our scripts for
generating debian packages for OpenNI here:

Cheers,
Suat Gedikli
