I recently got a Kinect to work on at my sumemr internship at Ducere Technologies. Having heard so much about OpenNI, I tried installing it on my Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64 bit machine. It took some time to configure, build and install it. I got help from few blogs. I managed to install it somehow. Connected the kinect and fired up the demo program and ran into troubles. I was getting following error.
A timeout has occurred while waiting for new data
