Problems installing Nuitrack on Ubuntu 14.04

I want to install nuitrack SDK and examples on my computer running on ubuntu 14.04 LTS but I’m encountering some problems:
when running

I got the following error:

and that didn’t work even when using the force-architecture argument.

Also I was unable to install the dependencies and compile the SDK:

and got this error:

I’m using the instructions described in the READ_ME files placed in the installation files
Is there any installation tutorials or other instructions and how could I fix these issues?
Your help is appreciated!


There is deb package for Linux ARM architecture by the provided link It was prepared for Orbbec Persee device and tested only with it. This deb file isn’t compatible with amd64 architecture.

Thanks for your reply,
But are there any plans to develop a tool compatible with amd64 architectures and other Orbbec devices? This will be great!

Hi, we have released Nuitrack for Linux amd64 (it supports Orbbec Astra/Astra Pro).
Please check

Hello all,

I am trying to install the AMD64 trial version on my Ubuntu OS 14.04.5 (I am also using a x64 processor). As soon as I enter the command:

sudo dpkg -i nuitrack-ubuntu-amd64.deb

The following message appears:

Preparing to unpack nuitrack-ubuntu-amd64.deb …
Unpacking nuitrack (0.23.1) …

dpkg: error processing archive nuitrack-ubuntu-amd64.deb (–install):
_ trying to overwrite ‘/usr/bin/niReg’, which is also in package openni-utils

dpkg-deb: error: subprocess paste was killed by signal (Broken pipe)

Errors were encountered while processing:
_ nuitrack-ubuntu-amd64.deb_

The only thing that I previously install on my computer was ROS and nothing else. Is any prerequisite missing?

Thank for your time,


I removed openni-utils package and now it seems that the installation is working. I hope that that was the problem.
