    I am on step 7 of the software installation. When I type this, “RawKinectViewer -compress 0”, the viewer screen does not come up and the terminal window does not let me type a command in unless I do ctrl+c. Do you guys have any ideas? I am using Linux.

    Do you get any messages from RawKinectViewer, or does it just hang?

    Try running it as

    RawKinectViewer -compress 0 -vruiVerbose

    and post the resulting output here (highlight output text in the terminal using the mouse; press Shift+Ctrl+C to copy, paste into web browser using Ctrl+V).


    We are setting up a new system and are also having issues in this space. The kinect was working but trying to re-open the RawKinectViewer will only open a black box. By running the above as suggested, we get:

    Any assistance is appreciated.
    Also, in the calibration procedure, in the steps with the cross hairs being projected, we are unable to get the menu to appear to complete assigning the tools.

    Many thanks 🙂

    That’s the problem. Are you using the newest Vrui, 4.2-006? I thought I had put a fix for this issue into it.

    If not, I’m planning to release a new Vrui version in a few days that has the fix in it for sure.



    I have the same problem…! Unfortunately is down due to hardware issues so I cannot download the latest vrui.

    Are there any mirror sites I could try? Or is there any other way for me to get it?
