The application is installed when you install the applications, which for Ubuntu is done by:

make install_applications  # In-project install: No super-user permissions are required.

Adapt repos/asibot-main/share/visionDepth/scripts/visionDepthKinect.xml.template to your needs or just:

cd repos/asibot-main/share/visionDepth/scripts
cp visionDepthKinect.xml.template visionDepthKinect.xml

You will also need the cartesianServer module and visionDepth module. For further installation steps refer to your own system installation guidelines.

Running (assuming correct installation)

First we must run a YARP name server if it is not running in our current namespace:

[on terminal 1] yarp server

Browse to repos/asibot-main/share and run yarpmanager (formerly gyarpmanager). The visionDepthKinect App should be available.

[on terminal 2] cd repos/asibot-main/share
[on terminal 2] yarpmanager
