I’ve been running into an issue lately with a project where I’m using ofxOpenNi. I’m running OSX 10.6.8, on a 2010 macbook pro, oF .007 and using a fairly recent ofxOpenNI with the following drivers: OpenNI 188.8.131.52 unstable, NITE 184.108.40.206 , SensorKinect (Avin) 220.127.116.11.
The issue I’m having is that during running the project the built-in keyboard and trackpad of my macbook can suddenly become unresponsive, and will remain so until I reboot. What does work is the power button of the laptop, and connecting a usb keyboard/mouse *sometimes* will give me control over the OS. When it doesn’t, it’s obvious that the USB port isn’t powering the keyboard/mouse.
I’m afraid I haven’t found a typical trigger for this issue but any non-ofxOpenNI oF program never has this result. It’s possible that I’ve edited too much out of the example which I took as a starting point (https://github.com/gameoverhack/ofxOpenNI -> openNiSample007), making the library unstable… but that’s just guessing on my part as I’m new to oF.
First of all, I’m wondering whether this is a known issue (didn’t find any instances from a first googling spree) and the second being: any ideas?
