[Solved] Linux Installation


I got the following error when i tried to install Nuitrack on my newly installed linux system(16.04).
Does anyone know how I could fix this?

$sudo dpkg -i nuitrack-ubuntu-amd64.deb

Hi Pradeep,

Try to remove the openni-utils with the following command:

sudo apt-get remove openni-utils


Hey Olga,

I got it installed, you can mark this closed.
thanks for your help.


hey Olga,
Just a follow up question, I activated my license with
sudo -E nuitrack_license_tool.

Then I built the nuitrack_ni_gl_sample as explained in the readme. but when i launch the created application nothing happens.
$ ./nuitrack_ni_gl_sample
Press Esc to close window.
Can’t create depth generator with error: Can’t create any node of the requested type!

Am I missing something?


What sensor do you use?


I have an Intel Realsense D435


nuitrack_ni_gl_sample doesn’t work with RealSense cameras as it works only with the sensors with OpenNI support.


Oh I didn’t know that. Thanks for the information. Does any of the other examples work with D435?


Yes, other samples should work fine, except for nuitrack_ni_sample (for the same reason).


I tried other examples and all of them gave similar results:

Do you connect your RealSense using USB 2.0 or 3.0? It’s important to connect it using USB 3.0.
Please provide us with 2 screenshots from realsense-viewer tool:

  1. Info tab
  2. Stereo Module > Resolution (list of modes)


@olga.kuzminykh hey,

I was able to make the examples and work. Will post here with the results of my project once I am done. Thanks for your help.


Hi, pillaya.
I have a error like you.
UVCVideoCapture::open ERROR: can’t find device

How did you solve the problem?
