Hi, I desperately need some help as I am trying to put this Sandbox together for an important trade show and it is not recognizing the Kinect. I am operating on the latest version of Mint, and am using the USB 2.0 slot, and am getting a slow flashing green light (I believe I am using the proper power adapter that I purchased with it). I even bought two of the Kinects and the power adapters in case one failed for some reason. Anyhow, here is the info I am receiving after the lsusb command:

kevin@AR-Sandbox ~/src/SARndbox-2.4 $ lsusb
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 024: ID 04f2:1459 Chicony Electronics Co., Ltd
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 8087:0aa7 Intel Corp.
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0bda:0153 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. Mass Storage Device
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0461:4e67 Primax Electronics, Ltd
Bus 001 Device 026: ID 045e:02b0 Microsoft Corp. Xbox NUI Motor
Bus 001 Device 025: ID 0409:005a NEC Corp. HighSpeed Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

But then, after I enter this command:

kevin@AR-Sandbox ~/src/SARndbox-2.4 $ sudo /usr/local/bin/KinectUtil getCalib 0

I get this error:

Could not download calibration data from Kinect 0

I tried running this command just to see what happens:

kevin@AR-Sandbox ~/src/SARndbox-2.4 $ RawKinectViewer -compress 0

And I get this error:

Terminated RawKinectViewer due to exception: Kinect::openDirectFrameSource: Less than 0 3D cameras connected to local host

Does anyone have any ideas? I went through this whole thread and can’t seem to find anyone that is having a similar problem with a fix. Any help or suggestions from the community would be greatly appreciated. Thx
