    I just installed the sandbox for the 3rd time, and it’s working great. It’s just that in this version, it seems I always have to run the program with sudo, which is annoying. I want the machine to auto-boot into the software, and not get a keyboard to enter this. Working with the latest release of Ubuntu by the way.
    Am I doing something wrong with the permissions? Or should I just switch to Mint?

    Side question: is there a way to use the lava function?


    Yes, you can change USB device permissions to avoid running the program in sudo.

    I followed the instructions here (, in particular the post of 12/3/2009 and the last post of the thread.

    It worked for me.

    Good luck.


    Hi Thomwolf -I solved it.

    My solution was that I had used installdevrule instead of installudevrule.

    So I went back into the Kinect folder and used

    make clean
    make install 
    make installudevrule

    and then rebooted 🙂

    I did the make clean, make, make install, and make installudevrule and rebooted and nothing happend.

    I am having the same problem.
