Hey Marcos,

We were getting the same msg as well:

terminate called after throwing an instance of ‘std::runtime_error’
what(): Kinect::Camera::Camera: Less than 0 Kinect camera devices detected

The light on the Kinect was blinking sporadically and would go off. The solution that worked for us was to go buy a PCI Express USB 3.0 Card that is also powered from your PSU. The problem is that your normal USB ports and the XBOX Kinect AC Adapter are not enough power. After this, VRui detects the kinect every time. We tried several more kinect’s just to make sure it wasn’t a fluke.

I will list our setup below:

CPU: i7 Hasswell
GPU: 970 GTX CeForce Nvidia
PSU: 750W
HDD: 120gig SSD
RAM: 8 gig
MB: Asus Sabertooth z87 Motherboard
OS: Linux Mint with Mate (with all updates) I believe the new one is 17.2 codename Rafaela
USB 3.0 PCI Express Cars that can also be powered by the PSU
