The Kinect software works fine over USB 3.0, but the problem is that some USB 3.0 host controllers are poorly supported in the Linux kernel itself. Basically, there are a lot of broken USB 3.0 controllers on the market that require “quirks” to make them work, and those are only implemented in secret custom drivers, typically only for Windows. Unfortunately, your laptop might have one of those USB chips.

You can find out which controller chip you have via lspci | grep "USB 3.0". The ones known to be good are by NEC or Renesas, chip ID uPD720200 or similar.
