I cannot find install instructions for OpenNi Ubuntu 11.10 anywhere on the internet. Does anyone have a link to how to get it up and running or how I can get started?

Download the OpenNI package from here

Before installing OpenNI you must install the dependencies. The following are the dependencies

  1. GCC 4.x

    sudo apt-get install g++
    
  2. Python 2.6+/3.x

    sudo apt-get install python
    
  3. LibUSB 1.0.8

    sudo apt-get install libusb-1.0-0-dev
    
  4. FreeGLUT3

    sudo apt-get install freeglut3-dev
    
  5. JDK 6.0 or above

    sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk
    

Once the above packages are installed. Now install the OpenNI package

unzip OpenNI-master.zip

cd ../Redist/OpenNI*/
sudo ./install.sh
