Hello to all,
I am experiencing the same problem with the ofxKinect example called "kinectExample" ( Kinect v1, RPi 3, Raspbian Jessie, OF 0.9.3 armv6 (is it a problem?)) .
When I type lsub, it looks like my RPi recognises the kinect:
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 046d:c534 Logitech, Inc.
Bus 001 Device 020: ID 045e:02ae Microsoft Corp. Xbox NUI Camera
Bus 001 Device 026: ID 045e:02ad Microsoft Corp. Xbox NUI Audio
Bus 001 Device 016: ID 045e:02c2 Microsoft Corp.
I have updated the permission rules like @medul_la suggested, but I still get this error :
[verbose] ofxKinect: 1 device found
[verbose] ofxKinect: id: 0 serial: 0000000000000000
Could not open audio: -4
Failed to open motor subddevice or it is not disabled.Failed to open audio subdevice or it is not disabled.[ error ] ofxKinect: could not open device 0
[warning] ofxKinect: update(): device -1 isn't delivering data, reconnecting tries: 1
I have followed the instructions on that website that shows a basic example using python and opencv, and I was able to get some data from the Kinect.
One last thing (and sorry for the really stupid question),
you mentioned the importance of having a powered usb hub for the kinect, are we talking about that?
