Ubuntu – Mouse/gesture control with kinect


I'm lazy and i know it… but I am looking for either a debian package or a set of terminal commands that will:

  • Download kinect drivers
  • enable me to control the mouse with Kinect

Is there any one out there that knows if this has been done or can do it?

Best Answer


It’s powered by something called TISCH (Tangible Interactive Surfaces for Collaboration between Humans) which now has a PPA with support for Kinect baked in.

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:floe/libtisch
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install libtisch libtisch-dev libtisch-csharp libtisch-java libtisch-python
