Nuitrack installation problem


#1

Hi, I am new to Nuitrack and planning to work with point cloud library. But when I install the Nuitrack, I got the following error

Selecting previously unselected package nuitrack.
(Reading database ... 370480 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to unpack nuitrack-ubuntu-amd64.deb ...
Unpacking nuitrack (0.29.0) ...
dpkg: error processing archive nuitrack-ubuntu-amd64.deb (--install):
 trying to overwrite '/usr/bin/NiViewer', which is also in package openni-utils 1.5.4.0-14
dpkg-deb: error: subprocess paste was killed by signal (Broken pipe)
Errors were encountered while processing:
 nuitrack-ubuntu-amd64.deb

I know that this error can be resolved by using

sudo apt-get remove openni-utils

But as I want the NuiTrack to work with the point cloud and the ROS, this solution may lead to some error.

So my question is that if there is any other solution to solve this error?

Thank you!

Nuitrack 0.29.0 + Nuitrack SDK v1.4.1 are compatible with ROS
OpenNI library is a part of Nuitrack and will be installed with it.
